Ep. 15 - Dr. John Swierk and Pigment Chemistry Testing
/

This week, the dudes sit down with Dr. John Swierk. Dr. John is a Ph.D. chemist working out of Binghamton University in New York State. His work focuses on the analysis of bottled tattoo pigment and how pigments degrade under light-energy interaction. Currently, his group is testing bottles of pigment to see how the labels match up with what’s really inside them.

Surprisingly (or maybe not at all), they don’t match up at all!

Learn more about pigments and Dr. John’s research by going to his Twitter or website listed below.
