Rosai-Dorfman Disease-Like Reaction to Tattoo.

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 Jun 5. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Pathology, Los Angeles Medical Center, Southern California Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles, CA.

A 47-year-old white man presented with a 14-month history of an asymptomatic 2-cm, slow-growing nodular lesion on his left shin that arose in the background of a black tattoo. An excisional biopsy followed by histological examination revealed a prominent lymphohistiocytic infiltrate, with many large, foamy histiocytic cells containing intact inflammatory cells within their cytoplasm, findings consistent with emperipolesis, a feature typical of Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD). By immunohistochemistry, S-100 (a marker that is positive in almost all cases of RDD) was negative, arguing against the diagnosis of RDD. Read More

Tattoo: Ancient art and current problems.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Jun 15. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Medicine and Aging Science, Dermatologic Clinic, University G D'Annunzio Chieti-Pescara, Chieti, Italy.

The popularity of tattoos in the today's society brings with it a significant increase of the incidence of associated cutaneous reactions. Among the several complications that may occur after a tattooing procedure, allergic and photo-allergic reactions, infections, and Koebner phenomenon are the most common ones observed. Most of these complications may be avoided by identifying, before tattooing, the presence of risk factors or comorbidities that may increase the risk of their onset. Read More

Preliminary Study of Multiple Stress Response Reactions in the Pond Snail Lymnaea stagnalis Exposed to Trace Metals and a Thiocarbamate Fungicide at Environmentally Relevant Concentrations.

Arch Environ Contam Toxicol 2020 Jul 9;79(1):89-100. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

Institute of Zoology, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

Gastropod mollusks have achieved an eminent importance as biological indicators of environmental quality. In the present study, we applied a multibiomarker approach to evaluate its applicability for the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis, exposed to common industrial and agricultural pollutants at environmentally relevant concentrations. The snails were exposed to copper (Cu, 10 µg L), zinc (Zn, 130 µg L), cadmium (Cd, 15 µg L), or the thiocarbamate fungicide "Tattoo" (91 µg L) during 14 days. Read More

Safety of tattoos and permanent make-up: a regulatory view.

Arch Toxicol 2020 02 6;94(2):357-369. Epub 2020 Feb 6.

German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), Department of Chemical and Product Safety, Max-Dohrn-Str. 8-10, 10589, Berlin, Germany.

The continuous increase in the popularity of tattoos and permanent make-up (PMU) has led to substantial changes in their societal perception. Besides a better understanding of pathological conditions associated with the injection of highly diverse substances into subepidermal layers of the skin, their regulation has occupied regulatory bodies around the globe. In that sense, current regulatory progress in the European Union is an exemplary initiative for improving the safety of tattooing. Read More

In vivo and ex vivo dermoscopy of lesions from implantation of human papillomavirus in tattoos: report of two cases.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Jan - Feb;95(1):78-81. Epub 2019 Dec 17.

Pathology Laboratory, Irmandade da Santa Casa de Misericórdia de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

The number of individuals with tattoos has been increasing worldwide, alongside with reports of complications varying from reactions to the injected pigments to infections caused by agents inoculated in the pigmentation process. The diagnosis of such unwanted events can be obtained through complementary non-invasive methods, preserving the maximum of the tattoo design. The authors present two cases of patients with warts on tattooing, and correlate their clinical aspects to in vivo and ex vivo dermoscopy, and to the findings in the histopathological examination, aiming to determine patterns that aid the diagnosis of these lesions without performing biopsy.

Effects of picosecond laser on the multi-colored tattoo removal using Hartley guinea pig: A preliminary study.

PLoS One 2018 6;13(9):e0203370. Epub 2018 Sep 6.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, Dankook University, Cheonan, Chungnam, Republic of Korea.

Picosecond lasers have emerged as the leading technology for tattoo removal due to their shorter pulse lengths. To clarify the features of picosecond lasers, we compared picosecond and nanosecond lasers in their ability to remove multi-colored tattoo in an animal model. We first compared a nanosecond quality-switched Nd:YAG laser with picosecond Alexandrite and quality-switched Nd:YAG lasers and then the picosecond quality-switched Nd:YAG laser with the picosecond Alexandrite laser, using a guinea pig model.

A new high-throughput method to make a quality control on tattoo inks.

Spectrochim Acta A Mol Biomol Spectrosc 2019 Jan 21;206:547-551. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Department of Environmental Biology, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy. Electronic address:

Nowadays, practice of tattooing is very common worldwide and, along with this increasing trend, there is also an increased risk of adverse reactions to tattoo pigments that are well known and described in literature. Previous studies have reported that cutaneous and allergic reactions to a particular pigment can manifest in several ways (allergic contact dermatitis and photo-allergic dermatitis). In this paper, a new high-throughput method is presented, in order to achieve a new system for the quality control on tattoo inks based on chromatographic-spectroscopic approach. Read More

A cystic lesion of the lid margin was excised suspecting basal cell carcinoma. On histology, black-turquoise pigment was seen in the dermis adjacent to the basal cell carcinoma. It was pronounced perivascular, intracellular in macrophages and fibroblasts, but also extracellular as free pigment in the tissue, compatible with an eyelid line tattoo. Read More

1 Department of Dermatology, Venereology, and Leprology, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, India.

Cutaneous reactions to tattoos can be attributed either to trauma or to the exogenous pigment introduced into the skin. Red pigment is associated with a high sensitizing potential and is the most frequently implicated pigment inducing various types of histological reactions. Herein, we describe a patient with red tattoo pigment-induced granulomatous dermatitis that histologically revealed a very rare granuloma annulare-like reaction. Read More
