Thinking about getting a tattoo? Well, here’s what you need to know.

The US FDA has just given an update on tattoos and it’s pretty scary. We know for sure that getting a tattoo in unhygienic places can get you an infection, due to the contamination of the ink. But even if you head off to the cleanest parlor (you’re not gonna like this), there is no known perfect way to figure out if the ink is safe or not. Yikes!

If you’ve already done a tattoo without any complications, consider yourself lucky. Although fever, shaking and sweating are some minor symptoms, which you may have passed off for another infection. But oh well, anyway, you’re still alive so, what gives?

But, are you still up for that tattoo?
