This book focuses on TATTOO: The Invaluable Compendium for Dermatologists. Tattooing is a very old practice, which involves insertion of ink pigment of the desired color into the dermis. It is practiced worldwide, across all cultures and is becoming increasingly common in India. Furthermore, it is becoming more prevalent among rural youngsters of India due to increased enthusiasm towards newer fashion trends exposing to increased risks and complications associated with it.
