In brief: Sterility/ hygiene

How well is your diabetes controlled? How sterile is the tattoo parlor's equipment? Tattoing can lead to infections with organisms like clostridium tetani, streptococcus pyogenes, staphylococcus aureus pseudomonas aeruginosa, haemophilus ducreyi, treponema pallidum & mycobacterium leprae.
It can cause illnesses like sepsis, impetigo, tetanus & erysipelas.
