How to prevent infection from skin tattoo?
Hello, my friend is 17 years old. She on this diwali wants to have a tattoo on her back. I heard that it may lead to several infection. My mother told me this, so I can not do this for me. But I am worried for my friend. Making a tattoo is too costly, having an infection after that is also a big headache. There must be a way to avoid infection. Please suggest how to do that?
@ipshita The popularity of tattoos may convince you that they aren’t all that risky to get. But getting a tattoo does carry some risk: Inserting an ink-covered needle into your skin has the potential to introduce foreign matter or infections into your body. Before getting a tattoo, find out if you’re allergic to any ingredients in tattoo ink. Make sure you ask your tattoo artist what ingredients their inks contain. If you’re allergic to any of the ingredients, ask for a different ink or avoid getting a tattoo altogether. However, keep in mind that it may be difficult to know what exactly is in tattoo inks as they aren’t regulated in any way. Make sure that all items that touch your skin have been properly sterilized. Don’t feel shy about asking the parlor about how they sterilize their instruments and meet safety standards. It’s your health! Is the tattoo parlor licensed? Licensed parlors have to be inspected by a health agency and meet certain safety requirements in order to stay open.
