Cancer alert over toxic tattoo inks

2 posts in this topic

SCIENTISTS are calling for more research into tattoos amid fears that the toxic inks can permeate into people’s bodies and may increase the risk of cancer.

With an estimated one in five adults now bearing tattoos, British scientists have found evidence that nanoparticles from the ink can get into major organs of the body.

Tattoo ink manufacturers acknowledge that 5% of tattoo studios use inks containing carcinogenic compounds, though they are campaigning to reduce it to zero.

Aren't nanoparticles an issue in some beauty products and some sunscreens as well?

Perfection comes with a price we aren't even told about.
