2. What are the health risks of tattoos?
A. Blood infection
B. Cause heart problems
C. Skin cancer
D. Allergies
Correct Answer:ACD
1. Infection. Although tattooists use routine disposable precautions and sterilize their equipment after each use to reduce risk. However, it is difficult to guarantee a sterile environment like a hospital, so bacterial infection cannot be completely avoided as long as it is puncturing the surface of the skin.
2. Allergic reactions. There have been records of allergic reactions to tattoo inks. Sometimes it is because of the metal nickel in the ink pigment, which causes metal allergy. Red or similar colors, such as purple, pink, and orange, tend to cause more health problems and skin damage than other colors.
3. Inducing skin cancer. The tattoo process involves the incorporation of metal salts and organic dyes into the dermal layer of the skin. The resulting trauma and chronic inflammation may stimulate the malignant transformation of the cells. There have been many skin cancer cases related to tattoos, such as black tumors, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and keratoacanthoma. In addition, tattoos can make cancer on the skin less likely to be detected. Especially when the large area is tattooed, and most of them are dark, the color blocks the abnormal changes of the skin.
4. Interfere with skin sweating. The study found that the sweat from the tattooed skin was reduced by about 50% compared to non-tattooed skin. If the tattoo area is large, especially in the back, arms or other areas of sweat glands, the tattoo can interfere with skin cooling and retain important nutrients, and may also cause thermoregulation problems.
