Could your tattoo give you cancer? Scientists fear toxins from ink could enter blood and accumulate in your major organs


Toxins from tattoo ink could be absorbed into the body and cause cancer, scientists have revealed.

Experts believe ink nanoparticles could enter the bloodstream and accumulate in the spleen and kidneys, harming the body's ability to filter impurities.

Studies have found that some ink used in the UK contains known carcinogens and scientists want more regulation of the dyes used by the industry.

Public Health England says that some inks contain substances such as cobalt and mercury.

A yellow jacket wasp sting will also bring the ink out,,,

capture one in a jar,,,and then hold it against the tattoo,,,

the swelling and stuff will help bring the ink out,,,

Think those scientists can come up with an immunization for those of us that already have ink?

Hi Kreeper,

I don't know what them scientists may come up with,,,

certainly getting the ink out would be helpful,,,

I was afraid someone might have tattoos,,,

and the natural remedy of using Yellow Jacket Wasps,,,

is probably a good one,,,as long as you are not allergic to

Wasp stings,,,other wise,,,the common removal system is to

use lasers,,,now from what I have read,,,this is much more painful

than getting a tattoo,,,much more,,,like a heck of alot more,,,

certainly you need a laser that can is powerful enough to burn flesh,,,

so you can get an idea from that,,,now this seems to me,,,and I

am not a doctor,,,but it might just release these toxic ink chemicals

all into your system at once,,,so that would not be good,,,the belt/disk

sander is probably safer in that respect,,,but I don't know this for sure,,,

hopefully your tattoos are not that large,,,or not that old,,,or I guess you

could get some ink dug out and tested for toxins,,,but I don't how much

that might cost...

LOL! Screw that! I've had these tats for over 20 years. If they are going to put carcinogens, or whatever, in my body then they are already there.

Good of you to care, though.

I'm not so worried about tattoos as much as the cosmetics applied every day by millions of women. It's totally unregulated and contains a lot of stuff that's not suitable for topical application or anything else for that matter. Parabens for instance are found in basically every soap or shampoo as a preservative. It's also an estrogen mimicking chemical. Not good.

I'll never get another one, but the one I have never gave me a problem... had it for ever.

Now other ways of getting the ink out is by using,,,

TCA,,,Trichloroacetic acid,,, an acid that removes the top layers of skin,,,

reaching as deep as the layer in which the tattoo ink resides,,,

or excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos,,,

this is probably the best method,,,and direct,,,where you simply cut

the area out where the tattoos are,,,and then cut another area,,,

for the graft...

Hi JayRodney,

Well if you had it forever,,,then I can assume you got it in the

USA,,,The report is from the UK,,,as is the research,,,

don't know if the ink is any different,,,or was any different,,,

but you may be OK,,,depending...

Tattoo removal is most commonly performed using lasers that break down the ink in the tattoo. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create.

Well,,,after finding this information,,,it might be wise,,,

not to use a laser,,,either use one of the other methods,,,

or just leave it be...
