Some tattoo inks are tainted with nontuberculous Mycobacteria. This bacteria can cause lung disease, eye problems, and organ and joint infections. Tattoo inks and pigments may also be contaminated with fungi and mold. Tattoo artists should make sure that only sterile water is used to dilute the inks. These findings were reported by the FDA in September 2012. It's important to be sure to check with your artist and be sure they run a clean shop. My cousin Chris here in town owns Caddy Daddy's Tattoo. This is an example of a clean shop. If you have questions or concerns on tattoo safety stop by his place and ask lots of questions....he would be happy to answer them!
Have a blessed day!
