Newest trends for tattoos fan this summer is gold-ink tattoos.
For the skeptics who would immediate think that this would be some kind of health issues to inject metal into the skin when it could easily enter the blood stream, yes, you are right. There are no tattoos in the classical sense of the word which includes coloring with gold or other metals.
If you have a design that needs to look metallic, a good tattoo artist would instead use other colors to make it look metallic without directly using gold or silver ink. Such colors would, indeed, be toxic for the body and not something you would want to have lodging inside your skin.
The kind of tattoos are something else. These are not injected into the surface of the skin. Instead they consist of 99.9% gold or platinum foil applied to the surface of the skin with a new technique developed by a Japanese company, along with other elements such as colored stones and glitter powder. So this kind of tattoos will not cause any allergy inside your body. Of course, if you are amongst the minority who would have any allergic reaction to normal jewelry made of gold or platinum, you should consider about leaving this design alone.
And of course this type of tattoos just like temporary tattoos, they do not last forever. The estimate is around 2-5 days. They can be removed quite easily. Since they are applied to the very surface of the skin they will basically wear off along with the skin cells you are shedding.
The entire concept of gold tattoos was developed by a Japanese artist, Nobuhiko Akatsuka, who founded his company Nudejewelery in 2008.
