Caption

Tattoo needle puncture in skin, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Skin tattooing has been practised for thousands of years. To make tattooing permanent tiny needles are used to punch through the top layer of the skin (epidermis) and into the next layer (dermis). This image shows many skin cells from the epidermis surrounding a hole created by a tattoo needle. Magnification: x280 when printed at 10cm wide.
