Caption

Tattoo. A tattoo of a sinking ship framed by an anchor on the arm of a sturdy seaman. Tattoos are made by pricking the skin with a sharp instrument while introducing an indelible dye. The immediate result is a large, painful scar, but this heals after several weeks leaving just the design. Small tattoos can be removed by cutting out the skin and stitching together the edges of the wound. Larger tattoos can be removed by laser burning or by rub- bing off the surface of the skin with sandpaper (dermabrasion). Neither method is completely succ- essful and permanent scars are almost always left.
