1. Tattoos – dangerous or harmless?

Tattooing is a tradition that does not originate from marking prison inmates, as is often claimed.

Tattooing was practiced by primitive peoples and it was also very common in some religions.

In Central Europe, like piercings, it became more and more trendy in the early/mid 2000s. Over the years, the practice has been increasingly refined, the contours improved and the variety of motifs and colors expanded.

This rightly brings questions that must be asked after increasing industrialization of tattoos.

Are tattoos dangerous for health or harmless?

2. Tattoos from origin to today

Industrialization always has advantages and disadvantages. Primitive peoples used for tattooing pointed stones, bones, teeth or in the best case thorns or cactus spines to carve wounds into the skin. This methodology was associated with significantly more scarring and many times higher risk of infection.

With modern tattoos, on the other hand, it is the tattoo colors that are extremely detrimental. At that time, it was usually charcoal and plant dyes that were pricked into the skin.

Today, they are chemical azo dyes, heavy metals, aluminum and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. This toxic cocktail is certainly not in the tattoo colors on purpose to make us sick. However, it is needed to meet the visual and technical requirements of tattoos in the 21st century.

3. Consequences of tattoos for the human organism

1. Heavy metal poisoning

Tattoo inks sometimes have heavy metals in very high quantities.

Heavy metals have particularly serious consequences for the nervous system and intestinal health.

2. Dye and nickel allergies

Especially since the bright colors in tattoos have become more and more trendy, dye allergies have also increased rapidly.

It is true that since 2008 there has been a tattooing agent ordinance that bans many colorants and additives. Nevertheless, there is always criticism of this regulation that significantly stricter precautions would have to be taken in the case of such an intervention.

The regulations for nickel content are also much looser than for piercings, for example.

Furthermore, tattoo inks are used again and again, which are not subject to this tattooing agent regulation.

3. Agglutinated painful scars

Tattoos are always injuries to the skin. Depending on holistic health, genetic factors, and the quality of the tattoo artist, scar tissue can vary in severity.

4. Oxygen deficiency

The importance of the skin as a respiratory organ is largely underestimated.

Extensive injuries to the skin result in significantly reduced oxygen uptake by the skin.

The consequences of oxygen deficiency for the human organism can be read in detail here.

5. Skin cancer

At the slightest sunburn, in connection with skin cancer, great panic is always spread.

With tattoos, however, the outcry is quite restrained. Perhaps that’s also because people don’t want to come into conflict with industries. From nature, on the other hand, you don’t have to expect legal action.

The human organism can regulate and repair sunburn relatively well. Long-term consequences can, of course, still not be ruled out.

However, a tattoo represents significantly greater damage to the skin and, when combined with oxygen deprivation, preservatives and dyes, creates a much higher potential for skin cancer to develop.

6. Blockages in the meridian system

Tattoos represent blockages in the meridian system from several perspectives at once.

One is the scars that can affect meridians. Even if they are no longer mechanically palpable, it can still happen in some cases that they block a meridian.

On the other hand, it is the dyes and heavy metals that interrupt energy flows.

7. Autoimmune diseases

Autoimmune diseases from tattoos? Of course.

Colorants and preservatives do not occur in this form in the wild. They can be classified as dangerous by the immune system and antigens can be developed against them.

Furthermore, the combination of a lack of oxygen, a diminished endogenous magnetic field and foreign substances is the perfect environment for pathogens to multiply.

These can flow to other areas of the body and trigger immune reactions there as well.

8. Impairment of the bodys own magnetic field

The human organism, just like the earth, has its own magnetic field. Without this magnetic field, humans cannot survive.

This endogenous magnetic field is reduced by scars, heavy metals and dyes.

9. Reduction of the performance

Tattoos in competitive sports?

In fact, tattoos are seen more and more often among competitive athletes, especially in soccer and handball. However, this does not mean that tattoos do not have an impact on performance.

Soccer and handball are sports that depend a lot on tactics, technique and team chemistry in addition to fitness.

The situation is different for marathon runners, track and field athletes and professional cyclists. Tattoos here are much rarer in the absolute elite of these sports.

Fully tattooed to win the Tour de France or a marathon? Rather unlikely.

The reduction in maximum performance is probably in the low single digits. With discreet, small tattoos, it’s probably more in the comms area.

In view of the fact that oxygen uptake through the skin is reduced, the magnetic field is reduced, heavy metals affect the nervous system and, under certain circumstances, the heart or lung meridian is blocked, it cannot be denied that maximum performance is impaired.

10. Damage lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is described in detail in the article “The 6 pillars of the immune system dealt with.

The importance of the lymphatic system in the human body is considered far too low. Thereby it is of high importance for our health.

The lymphatic system is the filtering system of the human organism. It virtually traps the very worst toxins.

Presumably, in individual cases, tattoos would be fatal because the liver, kidneys and spleen would not be able to cope with the toxins.

Fortunately, large parts of the dyes are trapped in the lymph nodes.

If you look at the function of the lymphatic system, especially in relation to competitive athletes, severe infections and cancers, you have to speak quite clearly of damage to the lymphatic system.

4. Treatment of consequences due to tattoos

1. Heavy metal elimination

People with tattoos very often have high levels of heavy metal exposure. It is therefore essential to carry out heavy metal elimination with ultrafine zeolite and bentonite.

2. Scar treatment

As long as scar tissue is palpable, mechanical scar treatment should be performed. Detailed instructions are given in the article “Treatment of sticky painful scars”.

3. High-end natural care products

Anyone who gets a tattoo should also take enough time for proper tattoo care.

In the period directly after a tattoo I recommend the product Skin Dream for internal use. This supports the skin regeneration enormously.

After acute wounds have healed, the After Sun Cream from Channoine should be used occasionally. This supports the skin from the outside with valuable ingredients and ensures that the tattoo also retains its beauty significantly longer.

4. Remove blockages in the meridian system

Mechanical scar treatment is not sufficient in some cases.

Sometimes scars also need to be energetically de-stressed and the balances in the meridian system restored.

I recommend introducing yourself to a professional accupuncturist, PowerPoint therapist or cell reactive trainer for this.

5. Liver cleansing

What is not completely intercepted by the lymph nodes must be metabolized by the liver. That is why it is recommended to perform a liver cleanse after tattoos.

For this purpose, you can take a 2-month with the medicinal mushrooms Shiitake, Maitake and Reishi from the product Exeloryl.

A precisely coordinated cure with apple juice and olive oil is also possible.

6. Holistic health promotion

Tattoos, like smoking or third-generation vaccinations, are only one factor in the development of disease.

In the development of diseases, many different disease-causing factors often come together.

For those who do not want to give up tattoos, it is recommended to practice holistic health promotion.
