News Station Warns About The Dangers Of Kids Getting DIY Tattoos

There is a video on Youtube that is teaching children how to give themselves tattoos.

While we support any good trade and empowering children to hone their skills and work hard at something, DIY tattoos seem like a bad idea.

Professional tattoo artists and doctors have both spoken out about home tattooing, where there are no regulations or authority overseeing the quality of tools used and the health of those receiving tattoos.

Doctor Joe Pendon at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital told KENS5 that the health risk aren’t just short-term:

There are bacteria everywhere. You can get infections just from using the equipment and then, you can also get infections from sharing needles with other people.

Kids, tattoos are forever. Wait until you can pay a professional before you make a decision you’re going to regret for the rest of your life. Just sayin’!
