    Your Tattoo May Be Poisoning You, Says Study

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/med...cid=spartanntp

    New study found that even if your tattoo artist makes sure the tools used are clean, your health could still be at risk.

    Tattoos are a great way to express yourself and stand out. Science even says that tattooed men can make great husbands. But there still are negatives to getting them, like always getting a lecture from grandma about how bad they are. Tattoos can also negatively affect your health.

    A new study published in NYU Langone Medical Center looked at 300 New Yorkers between the ages 18 and 69 who experienced a rash, itching or swelling that lasted anywhere from four months to several years after getting a tattoo.

    The study found that even if your tattoo artist makes sure the tools used are clean, your health could still be at risk.

    "The skin is a highly immune-sensitive organ, and the long-term consequences of repeatedly testing the body's immune system with injected dyes and colored inks are poorly understood," explains Marie C. Leger, MD, PhD, study lead, and assistant professor at the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology. "Some of the reactions appear to be an immune response, yet we do not know who is most likely to have an immune reaction to a tattoo."

    So, if your body doesn't get along with the ink or is worn down by it, be prepared for things to backfire. "Given the growing popularity of tattoos," says Leger, "physicians, public health officials, and consumers need to be aware of the risks involved."

    You should really weigh the risk in your head before making your next tattoo appointment.

    My grandma lectured about them because of Leviticus 19:28.

    To avoid religious drift I will leave it at that.

    I view the popularity of tattoos as an indicator of the continuing decline of society. YMMV.

    I know more people who are having them removed rather than getting them.

    I would never mess up what God gave me. I do think there's a good Biblical warning for not doing it.

    I've been trying to convince my fifteen-year-old granddaughter that she really does not want to get tattoos...she says she only wants one small one in some inconspicuous spot, but I've always thought that there could be adverse health effects from injecting dyes into your skin, even many years later. Not to mention that what may look 'cool' on a young person usually looks pretty sad on a saggy, wrinkled older person.

    God does NOT like graffiti on HIS TEMPLE, your body, a place reserved to be His Holy dwelling place, and He said so in scripture.

    Leviticus 19:28 New King James Version (NKJV)

    28 You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.
    By Faith and Trust GET IN the Ark of God's SALVATION,
    sent for YOU, which is the BODY of Christ Jesus, his Son,
    without which NO one comes to the Father(Heaven),but through him.

    Around here, arrestees with facial tats are guaranteed front page on the public notice of arrests.

    I don't have the medical paper citations with me but you can Google it but they are finding tattoo pigments (some with heavy metals) in the lymphatic systems. That is not a good thing! There also are no safety standards for tat ink formulations, which irks me as the FDA wants to control/get rid of homeopathic "because of safety ...." but nada on tat inks. Besides, technically, a tattoo is an invasive procedure (needle injecting a foreign substance under the skin) but the medical community (aka FDA/AMA) could care less. Personally, I always thought why ruin a perfectly good piece of art with a tat. YMMV

    Personally, I am not a tattoo fan, no matter what the age or gender. But, that's just me and I can understand how some people put their passions on their bodies. I would never scorn someone who decides to decorate themselves for their belief.

    I also will never, if reason prevails, get a tattoo on my body. My Grandmother on my Dad's side, made me 'promise' to never get one, this was literally on her death bed, she passed within the hour.

    Fortunately, the sweetie has none also, I don't anticipate any in the future either...

    Also, I've added the 'Leviticus 19:28' interpretations at the bottom. Seems to be a consensus across the board.

    The health angle would be a great way to wiggle out of taking the mark of the beast. Refuse on health grounds alone.

    Now watch, when they start demanding that people take the mark, they'll emphasize that it's made with organic ink.

    I grew up in a time where they were rare.........some service people had them after getting them done overseas somewhere is about all I saw.

    In my bodybuilding days having a tattoo lost you points in a contest so they were never of interest to me in having any.

    I always thought as a person gets older in life their rebel youth tattoos would look silly away.......

    I can't believe the amount of people at the gym who have them............and not just the inner city thug types or crazy power lifters........but your everyday office nerds and overweight bat winged arm women too..........

    Waste of money......

    It's interesting that God say's it' for the dead. Does anyone know more about why that is or the meaning?

    Anyway some of us like me got tattoos when we were younger and were not a Christian yet.

    Well, of all the things in my life God can hold against me, I don't think tattoos is one. I have one on my left ankle in memory of my sister who passed in 2003 and one on my right forearm in memory of Mike.

    I've been thinking about getting another. Guess I'm going to hell....
    At peace in the arms of Jesus. RIP my love until we meet again.

    Look at the pictures in school Year books or old glamour magazines

    Make up
    Clothes
    Hairstyles are all constantly changing

    Why would ANYONE want a permanent tattoo look that is dated and fades with time and warps with old skin

    Don't have any tattoos, with the copious amount of scaring I have, figure they make as much if not more of a statement than tattoos do. I don't judge people on them in a general sense other than a taste factor. Tattoos all over the face and the like are in poor taste imo. Artwork is another point, some of them look like a three year old was turned loose with a tattoo needle gun.

    As for the health aspect, anything that penetrates the skin sinking any foriegn material into is an inherent risk. That's an individual risk and not for me to say they shouldn't or should.

    I've always wondered how a face tattoo affects your job interview for a salesman for a company... or any job where you interact with the public.

    My job interviewing days are over, but a visible face or neck tat is good for a five step advance on the shoot-me-first list. EACH ONE is five steps.

    If a tat is all it takes to get sent to hell, you'll have plenty of company.

    I have a few friends with tattoos. One I thought was just crazy. She even has a tattoo that sprawls all over her back. Some kind of Native American design. And she has Crone's disease, so I wonder how she's feeling these days, although I haven't heard from her since she moved to the South. I worked with a woman who had tattoos all over both legs, and I'm sure other places. Flowers. Just never worked up the guts to do it to myself. LOL.

    Anyway some of us like me got tattoos when we were younger and were not a Christian yet.

    From what I’ve read in my Catholic commentary, the Israelites began cutting their flesh and putting the remains of deceased loved ones in their skin. This was a pagan practice and God strictly forbade it.

    As for the word tattoo, it didn’t come into the English language until the mid 1700’s. It’s a Polynesian word the describes ink markings on the skin. There is no word of a tattoo in the bibles before this time, it was added in. The Crusaders had crosses tattooed on their arms to signify if their bodies were found dead from war, they’d receive a Christian burial. I believe you have to factor in what the intent of the person is putting permanent ink on their bodies. Unfortunately today, we see a lot of evil designs.

    I saw a guy the other day, his whole face and head was tatted up along with his arms. He was panhandling and smoking a cigarette. He might be able to get a ditch digging job or a roofer. When we had our roof replaced, that's the type that showed up to remove the old roof.

    Yay! Another Tat bashing thread. After 20 years (next month) in a motorcycle club, I have a few. All of them are covered if I wear sleeves. Personally, I would never consider a face or neck tat, but I have friends with them.
    My daughter has been asking to get her mothers signature inked on her for the last several years. Her mom passed when she was seven. I told her that she can make that decision for herself when she turns 18, not before.

    Same here. My DD-17- wants a tat of her Dad's birthday. I told her she could do what she wants when she turns 18. I got my first tat in honor of my sister when I was 45 and the 2nd, in honor of Mike, when I was 50. I don't care for guys with tattoos on their faces or necks that's just ridiculous IMHO- but arms? Yes please.
    At peace in the arms of Jesus. RIP my love until we meet again.

    Science even says that tattooed men can make great husbands.

    Maybe if the tattoo says something like, "Property of Maggie. Keep off bitches!"

    As for the word tattoo, it didn’t come into the English language until the mid 1700’s. It’s a Polynesian word the describes ink markings on the skin. There is no word of a tattoo in the bibles before this time, it was added in. The Crusaders had crosses tattooed on their arms to signify if their bodies were found dead from war, they’d receive a Christian burial. I believe you have to factor in what the intent of the person is putting permanent ink on their bodies. Unfortunately today, we see a lot of evil designs.
    Polynesian of the Samoan variety specifically. Some will try to argue it was from the latin word stigma, but they would be wrong. The Crusaders were not alone in staining their skin, but the European variant came more along the lines of a brand.
    Facts?? We don't need no stinkin facts...

    Did you grow up with a father that had a naked lady sitting in a martini glass on one arm and on the other arm a naked lady standing? As a child and even into my teen years, I was too embarrassed to have friends over because I didn't want to be the brunt of being humiliated all over again. To this day, I hate tattoos and I vowed to myself to never marry a man with tattoos. But heh, I didn't choose my sperm donor - or egg donor for that matter.
