The skin has 3 main layers:
• Epidermis
• Dermis
• Hypodermis
The epidermis is the top layer of the skin. It has different thickness on different parts of the body. The epidermis has 5 layers (from top to bottom):
• Stratum corneum (horny layer)
• Stratum lucidum (clear layer)
• Granular layer
• Spinous layer
• Basal layer

To make the pigments stay in the skin, the PMU artist must know and feel the right depth. The pigments should be implanted in the top part of the dermis.

The PMU procedure is a trauma for the skin. As a reaction, the skin gets irritated, swelles, turns red and tissue liquid is being produced. This is how the immune system tries to get rid of the unknown material. Langerhans cells can be found in the spinous layer in the epidermis that detects the unknown material and start producing tissue liquid to protect the skin from bacteria, viruses and other substances. For the skin, the pigments are also unknown material. This is also a reason why the pigments should be implanted in the dermis. You must not go too deep in the skin as it can cause scars! The PMU can fade and lighten throughout the years because of the processes of the immune system in the skin.
There are 3 liquids in the skin: water, blood and grease.These affect the spreading of the pigments. After careful consideration of the skin’s condition, the PMU artist must choose the right PMU technique for the client!
