Dermatography is the application of tattooing techniques in medicine. In the past, several techniques were tried but none led to reproducible results. Dermatography has been developed over the last 10 years into a technique which is both generally applicable and reproducible. It is a suitable treatment modality for disturbing discolorations and scars of the skin which can be permanently camouflaged.
