Collagen Type 1 (one): Bone (Also found in skin and tendon)

Collagen Type 2 (two): Cartwolage (cartilage)

Collagen Type 3 (three): Rethreeculin(reticulin)

Collagen Type 4 (four): Floor (Basement Membrane)

There are several more types of collagen, however, you should remember atleast these four.

3) Reticular (and blood vessels)

5) Hair
