Can you get cancer from tattoo? & aside from that, what makes you get hepatitis C from tattooing?

Someone told me tattoo will give you cancer , is it true ?

No: I'm sorry folks make up stuff like this. Perhaps this person thought your getting a particular tattoo was a bad idea. If you've wanted a particular "tat" for a few years and you've decided it's time, go for it. If you're under 30 and it's not the name of a family member, put it someplace inconspicuous. Best wishes. ...Read more
