Yes that’s part of me, I will spare you the rest of the pictures but it is nearly my whole body except hands, feet, neck, head, and groin. ( horimono ). Interesting question,
Very impressive!
I sweat just fine, why would you think I don’t?
The sweat glands are quite superficial and I wondered if they get damaged by the tattooing needles. Clearly not!

Some pigment can end up in the lymph glands, I’m nearly certain the pigments are toxic to some extent. I have assisted in some lymph node biopsies on heavily tattooed people where the excised tissues had some brightly colored areas subsequent to recent tattooing sessions. One can only assume these are not a good thing to have floating about in one’s lymphatic system.
