Obviously there is some concern about getting a tattoo because when you get a tattoo, you risk getting an infection, pain and wonder about the possibilities of infectious diseases.
The process needs to be better understood.
1. Can I Get Infectious Diseases From Tattoo Needles?
There has been some concern recently regarding transmittable diseases (particularly Hepatitis-B and AIDS [HIV]) and tattoo shops.
Just as in a dentist’s office, as long as the area is strictly sanitized, your chances for infection will be greatly reduced.
2. Can I Get Aids From Tattooing?
When needles are passed from IDU to IDU and reused without sterilization, some of that blood remains in the syringe and is passed on to the next user.
If infected blood is passed, the recipient can become infected with HIV, which leads to AIDS.
Tattooing is VERY different from injecting drugs.
The needles used in tattooing are not hollow.
They do, however, travel back and forth through a hollow tube that acts as an ink reservoir.
The tip of the tube is dipped into the ink, which draws a little into the tube.
3. Can My Tattoo’s Get Infected?
Not as long as you take care of your new tat.
There is a section in the E-book that covers healing methods in depth.
Some people have trouble healing tattoos with colors they are allergic to.
