Tattoos have become exceptionally popular over the last several years. While there used to be a big stigma attached to them, more and more people are changing their minds and seeing them in a different light.
Plenty of younger people love getting tattoos as a way of expressing themselves, and even older generations are starting to get in on the action. They’re a great way to commemorate people you love, memories you cherish, or designs that represent your personality.
Or maybe you just really want a giant monster on your back. You do you, we’re not here to judge.
However, like most things, tattoos carry some inherent risks that can pose serious threats to your health if you’re not careful. You need to be mindful of how clean the shop you go to keeps their equipment, how professional your artist is, and keeping it clean afterwards in order to avoid infection, or worse.
Case and point: a woman might lose her vision because of a tattoo she decided to get, and she’s warning people about doing the same.
