    In tattooing, the pigment is a contaminant so, as it gets injected into the skin, it becomes encapsulated in a band of collagen, which is why the “bodyart” stays in place. Encapsulation keeps the pigment isolated from the rest of the body, protecting the latter from further contamination. “Contaminant” is a synonym for “dirt”. So, even if a tattooee bathes daily, he or she will be a clean person but with pockets of dirt where the tattoos are. It’s a dirty art form.
