Nice kumaresh
Stalagmite. you can remember the difference between the ones hanging down,
because they have to hold on tight, the ones from the ceiling of the cave are stalagtites, the ones on the floor of the cave.

Every one of us are well known with the word tattooing. Does any one know anything about injected pigments?

e.g.:-
* Wound not cleaned properly or dirt left accidentally inside the wound,
* Pricking dermis with dyes during tattooing,
