Intenze True Magenta

Status: Incompletely Characterized

Intenze True Magenta is a dark red tattoo pigment. Spectroscopic analysis suggests there may be the presence of azo compounds. Other possible issues include the presence of low levels of cadmium, mercury, and lead.  Other possible issues include a level of chromium that exceeds 1 ppm level recommended to avoid allergic reactions in people with chromium allergies.
