When considering getting a tattoo you have many different questions, like if they cause cancer or not, if they’re bad for your blood, and the other adverse side effects you may or may not encounter. Many people have questions about the long-term healthiness of getting a tattoo as well. They no doubt have heard many different stories about tattoos the majority of the stories that they have heard have not come from professionals in the medical field but instead from laypeople sharing believes and not information based on true objective research.

Do Tattoos Cause Cancer Cells to Grow?

Do tattoos cause cancer? No.It is our belief that before you take anything as being the truth that you research it for yourself. You not only research it for yourself but you look for quality information. What do we mean by quality information? By quality information we mean information that comes from reliable sources, that being information from a variety of professionals. People who are in the science industry and medical industry who can share objective facts based on the amount of research that we currently have.

There’s no doubt that some people will try to scare you away from getting a tattoo. These people will share with you information about how getting a tattoo is not good for your health. If it is not trying to scare you away by saying that getting a tattoo can cause cancer, it is instead telling you that the ink that is used in a tattoo can enter into your bloodstream. These are all the different fear mongering tactics that are used when people are considering getting a tattoo but they do not hold any merit.

 

There Are Negative Effects of Tattoos, But Cancer Isn’t One of Them.

How do we know these ideas and belief do not hold any merit? We know this because we have taken the time to do our own homework. We know that getting a tattoo is not natural, our bodies did not come out of our mother’s womb with tattoos on them and to create a permanent tattoo we have to use ink that can last a very long time. There’s always a fear when using any type of chemical on the body that it will adversely affect the person and that it might have long-term consequences and outcomes for them. But when it comes to tattoos there’s no objective research that suggests that the ink within tattoos will enter into the bloodstream and cause all these different problems. There are some slight negative effects of tattoos that you should be aware of though, such as discomfort and possible infection. There’s definitely not any objective research to suggest in any way that getting a tattoo and the chemicals that are used in the ink of tattoos will cause cancer.
