Before we start let me explain what tattoo peeling actually is. Peeling of a tattoo is natural when you made tattoo on your body. Peeling is the reason when an artist made tattoo on your body, needle pierce in your body many time in a very close range, and in this result the immune system in the body send blood and plasma at very space because foreign elements are inserted in your body thru needles. After some time the plasma made a spreading over your required area and made a coating which prevent the wound from bacterial infection. The coating is slightly swollen like blister or less like that. When the wound is in healing process the plasma coating will be on it to save the wound from foreign infection.

The plasma coating on the wound contains optimum moisture for the wound to heal and also seals the moisture in it and plasma cells also help keeping the wound clean. With the passage of time the layer or coating made by the plasma cells will dry and will prevent tattoo peeling. This is the sign that the wound inside has completed its healing process and plasma cells have played their part of healing.

Common Reasons Behind Peeling of a Tattoo

Basically tattoo peeling is the last stage of the wound healing. When healing is done, the outer layer dries and it’s in the position of shedding that dry layer. This happens because when healing is done our brain send a message to stop regeneration of cells and the plasma cells on those layers and some blood cells are stopped from further process and they became the residue of dead cells. The body sheds that very layer because if there will be more dead cells there will be more chances of cancer in that particular space. So body sheds that particular portion of dead cells.

This is not necessary in tattoo peeling it also happens or more likely say it happens more with the people who have more dandruff than normal persons, but it’s not noticeable sometimes, but it can be noticeable in tattoo peeling and when you have sun burn. In both cases you can see clearly that your body shed the layer of particular portion and brings a new skin underneath it.
