As tattoos have become more fashionable they have attracted more
scientific research, and concern is now emerging about a possible
long-term health risk.
There is solid science to show that many of the inks used in tattoos
contain carcinogens. This means people are having cancer-producing
particles injected directly into their skin.
But oddly enough, they are not developing skin cancers. One
explanation is that these particles are stable. If they were not stable,
the tattoo would not be permanent.
