Dangers of Tattoos

Getting a tattoo can be a thrilling experience for people who decide to get this form of body art. A tattoo is often a personal choice; the fact that tattoos are permanent and their removal is difficult and painful means that most people usually deeply consider the meaning of the tattoo before climbing in the tattoo artist’s chair. Additionally, it is imperative that one considers the risks of tattoos as well.

Even if you visit a clean, professional, and qualified tattoo parlor, you are still at serious risk of experiencing serious complications after you get the tattoo. If you or someone you know has been injured due to a negligent or careless tattoo artist, you may qualify for compensation.

Dangers of Tattoos

Tattoos work by injecting ink into the lower layer of your skin, known as the dermis. The dermis does not regenerate like the epidermis, which is why tattoos are permanent. If an individual gets a tattoo done at an unsafe parlor or by a negligent tattoo artist, there are some health risks that could arise. Some of the dangers of getting a tattoo include:

  • Skin problems, including inflamed red bumps
  • Scarring
  • Allergic reactions to the ink
  • Risk of contracting diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B & C, and tetanus
  • Infection

Many of these dangers can be prevented by using safe, hygienic tattoo ink as well as fully sterilized needles and tattoo guns. However, not everyone follows these basic safety practices.
