The risk of diseases and tattoos go hand and hand.
If you're thinking of getting a tattoo you'll want to first consider the diseases you may risk contracting while getting a tattoo. Skin infections, allergic reactions, and skin disorders, and blood born diseases are all too common with getting a tattoo. In some cases, you just might be getting more than you bargained for.
Tattoos and Hepatitis C, in actuality are good old friends. Hepatitis C is one of the most common diseases acquired from getting a tattoo. The symptoms include vomiting, body aches, jaundice and itchy skin. All of these symptoms can lead to an all out attack on the liver so leading to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Have you thought about Tetanus? This disease served with tattoos is a blood disease that infects the human skeletal muscles causing lockjaw or muscle spasms. Tetanus can attack the lungs and or circulatory system affecting the function of these two critical bodily systems.
Well, if the first two did not turn you off then what about Herpes Simplex Virus. This disease promises oozing, watery blisters that can appear on your mouth and / or lips. It can also appear on other areas of the skin such as your private stash, aka your genitals. Better yet, these beautiful blisters are not only painful they're expensive to treat.
We will not dwell on the other disease, prone to tattoos, including HIV, Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Leprosy, even Plasma Leakage (whatever that means). There's far too many to focus on them all.
Some guarantees come with your tattoo including increased pain, redness and warmth around or on the freshly tattooed skin. For no extra charge they may even throw in the added bonus of pus, bad odor, cloudy fluid, swollen lymph nodes and sunset of a fever.
So what does this all mean? No, we are not trying to shy you away from getting that tattoo all together; we just want you to be educated on the risks.
These diseases are more frequent than anyone would like to admit and it happens to people who are getting tattoos when needles or dye are reused, contaminated, and therefore not sanitary.
If you are positive you want to get a tattoo, there is one thing for sure- you better do your research. Find a professional tattoo artist. Make sure they are practicing sterile techniques in a clean sterile and sanitized environment. And be sure to remember tattoos present high risk for contracting serious diseases.
