What if tattoo ink can travel throughout your body and wind up in lymph nodes?

Tattoo ink can travel throughout your body and wind up in lymph nodes, a study shows.

Members from the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in France, and the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, and Ludwig-Maximilians University, used synchrotron X-ray fluorescence in four human cadavers with tattoos and 1 without in the slightly macabre experiment to know exactly where the ink travels to.

Apparently it does, and that ain't good.
It's funny, people are concerned about the dyes used in foods, yet they'll tattoo their bodies with potentially toxic pigments. That doesn't make sense to me.
I'm happy to say, I have no tattoos, and I don't plan on getting any.
Personally, I've always thought they were pretty ugly, and get uglier with age.
