It seems the Center for Disease Control has studied tattoos and their health risks, and the verdict is in.
NO CASE OF AIDS TRASMISSION HAS EVER BEEN DOCUMENTED IN A U.S. TATTOO STUDIO!
Of the 13,387 annual cases of hepatitis detailed in the most recent CDC report,
12 are associated with tattoo studios. By comparison, 43 cases -- or better than
300% more -- are associated with dental offices
So in fact, you have a higher risk of contracting Hepatitis at your dentist office than at your tattoo parlour. Wow! Whodathunkit?
Sorry, moms. Looks like you have one less credible excuse why your kid shouldn't get some ink.
