Poisoned by Tattoos? Even Fake Ones?

Poisoned by Tattoos? Even Fake Ones?

Jaime Alexander is an actress who undergoes 7 hours of tattoo application every day filming some TV show called “Blindspot.” I’ve never seen it and I admire her dedication to having the tattoos applied every day, but you’d think that they would have figured out a way to apply the tattoos and have them look good for a few days. There is no way that I’d agree to spend 7 hours every day just preparing to go to work. As for the possibility of her being injured somehow (poisoned) by the tattoos – like everything else, toxicity is determined by the dose. Dose is determined by concentration and time. The higher the concentration of anything can be toxic if you are exposed to it for the necessary amount of time. I don’t know what material they use to apply the tattoos, but if it is absorbed into her body – who knows? Maybe we are all witnessing a slow poisoning every week. Maybe I’ll have to tune in.
