Yet another article about tattoo removal where false information is being spread.
Let’s say you are living in the moment, feeling giddy — a little tipsy, maybe — and you decide to go for it. You decide to get that tattoo.
Dr. Suzanne Kilmer has a warning for you: Think twice before acting. Not only do you face five times the risk of contracting hepatitis C, chances are you’ll change your mind about whether you like your tattoo before you reach middle age.
Recent studies have shown a correlation between tattoos and hep C, but also stated that the risks were much lower in a professional shop. The data showed that people with hepatitis were 5x more likely to have tattoos, not the other way around like she stated.
There is also no data to support her statement that “chances are you’ll change your mind about whether you like your tattoo before you reach middle age.”
