According to new American research, people with a lot of tattoos have a better immune response than those who get a tattoo for the first time.

I tattoos hurt? No, tattoos are good for you! Ready to swear it are the flower of scientists according to whom people with many tatoos have a better immune response compared to those who get tattooed for the first time.

According to a study published inAmerican Journal of Human Biology, in fact, from now on you could get a tattoo not only for simple pleasure or to cover certain scars, but also to fix your immune defenses.

For the researchers at the University of Alabama who conducted the study, in short, getting tattooed from head to toe would strengthen the immune system. To carry out the investigation, the researchers collected saliva samples from 29 people before and after getting a tattoo to analyze the levels of immunoglobin A, an antibody involved in the body's immune response.

In the experiment, while i immunoglobin A levels of people getting tattooed for the first time stooped, as did people who had a few more tattoos. This would be explained by the fact that those who wear more tattoos would develop strong vigilance against the stressors associated with soft tissue damage. From here, the immune system would also be stronger.

"Getting a tattoo can stimulate the immune system in a way very similar to vaccination - experts say - and make the body less susceptible to future pathogenic infiltrations". According to Christopher Lynn, a professor of anthropology at the University of Alabama and co-author of the study, getting a single tattoo can mean temporarily lowering your immune defenses.

The logic is this: if you continue to stress your body several times, after an initial tension, the body's immune response would become stronger.



Sure, it could be a nice and alternative way to "stay healthy", but we remain a bit skeptical on the matter and prefer the good old classic or natural methods, such as turmeric and a thousand other foods that Mother Nature offers us!
