Today we’re going to talk about taboo ink and whether or not it’s safe. When you get a tattoo, they’re injecting certain pigments into your skin. 

A few points on tattoos to keep in mind:
• Tattoo ink is not regulated by the FDA
• You can’t donate blood if you’ve gotten a tattoo within the same year
• If you get a tattoo, make sure they do autoclave sterilization 
• There is a small risk of infection
• There is a risk you could be allergic to the pigment 
• There are certain pigments that can be toxic 
• Some of the ingredients in the pigments could be carcinogenic 
• There are no systematic safety studies on tattoos 

If you’re going to get a tattoo, you may want to make sure that the ink they expose you to is non-toxic. 

Here are a few of the chemicals and different things that can be in tattoo ink:
1. Heavy metals (mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum)
2. Acrylics 
3. Solvents
4. Plastics 
5. PETs and PBHs

Manufacturers also don’t have to reveal their ingredients if it’s a proprietary blend. If you want to get a tattoo, make sure the ink is organic, free of iron oxide, and free of the things above.  

If you already have tattoos, I think one of the best things you could do is to eat very healthily and make sure your immune system is very strong.
