Re: [IP] Tattoos/Piercings Problems or Not?



Just to clarify...
 
For a tattoo salon to be licensed, they must pass rigorous testing and  
maintain standards...the risk of getting HIV/Hep B/Hep C is very low.
 
On another note, the spreading of messages such as was mentioned about  doing 
CPR on a person with tattoos and the incidence of HIV is absurd, and it is  
uneducated people that severely damage the reputation of what good can come 
 from administering CPR when needed. Sure, you can get the flu or a cold....but
HIV?  not transmitted by saliva.  Do your research, folks.
