Presented by TATARTIST Tattoo Furniture - Where Quality Meets Commitment.

For centuries, tattoos have graced human skin, telling tales of journeys, memories, and milestones. But like every ancient art, it's not without its shadows. Dive into the realm of tattooing, where risks meet precautions, and where artistry is married to safety.

  • The Potential Risks:


  1. Infections: Without strict hygiene standards, bacterial infections can occur post-tattooing. Symptoms include redness, swelling, pus, and even fever. Bloodborne diseases like Hepatitis B and C, or HIV are graver concerns. A notable report from the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology mentioned up to 6% of tattooed adults face complications, predominantly skin infections.
  2. Allergic Reactions: Some individuals can be hypersensitive to certain tattoo inks, leading to itching, swelling, or rashes.
  3. Scarring: An imperfect technique can give rise to keloids, or raised scars, marring the beauty of the tattoo.
  4. MRI Complications: Although infrequent, individuals have reported sensations of burning or swelling during MRI tests because of their tattoos.


  • A Real Case That Shook the Tattoo World:

In 2017, a young woman from California went in for a large floral tattoo on her back. Within days, she reported intense pain, not just at the tattoo site but throughout her body. A visit to the hospital revealed she had contracted a severe infection from an unsterilized needle, which had led to septic shock. Her case, while rare, emphasized the grave importance of ensuring cleanliness and sterilization in tattoo parlors.

  • Reducing the Risks:
  1. Select Reputed Studios: Prioritize licensed tattoo parlors with an established reputation. Confirm their sterilization procedures and insist on disposable needles and fresh ink.
  2. Heed Aftercare Instructions: A newly minted tattoo is essentially an open wound. Adhering to aftercare guidelines is pivotal to prevent infections and assure proper healing.
  3. Allergy Tests: If allergies are a concern, request your tattoo artist for a patch test using the chosen ink colors.
  4. Trust in Premier Tattoo Furniture: I've always advocated for TATARTIST Tattoo Furniture. Beyond client comfort, their designs allow me as an artist to maintain the best posture, minimizing the chances of errors or lengthy sessions.

The journey of inking one's body is both personal and profound. It’s a dance of needle and skin, of ink and imagination. Ensure it's done safely.
