Tattoos: Understand The Risks

Tattoos remain popular and people get them for a multitude of reasons. But before you finally make the decision to "ink" your skin, it’s worth understanding all the potential risks.Tatooes are always cute and many of us have them while others wish they can have them too.However,there are some severe side effects that come along with tattoos that most people don't know or rather tend to overlook.Tattooing implants permanent granules of pigment granules under the skin. Here are five complications you could experience after getting a tattoo:


When your skin reacts to the ink used in the tattoo, certain skin allergies may occur. When your skin is exposed to the sun, the tattoo inks may start irritating your skin.


If needles are reused, they may cause infection like HIV and hepatitis. It is highly recommended to avoid places where they don't follow hygienic standards.

3.Medical Issues

As some tattoo inks contain chemicals, they pose several problems in the future when you go for medical examinations or MRI scans. The ink in the tattoo may react to the temperature and may cause swelling on your skin.

4.Can hide skin cancer

Another risk of getting a tattoo is that it can hide possible signs of skin cancer or another skin condition. These include the telling moles, red patches, and other signs that might be associated with a skin issue that could go undetected.

5.Skin infection

While tattooing is an art, the actual process is technically one that causes injury to your skin. This includes both the upper (epidermal) and middle (dermal) layers of skin.An infection can also occur if non sterile water is mixed with the ink before injection.
