Have you ever thought getting a tattoo? Probably yes, right? Because maybe your favorite actress or player has one. Nowadays it is common that many people get tattoos. It is because we are having an influence of getting tattoos through some T.V. programs like “Miami ink” and “Inked”. These programs show us that tattoos are the most amazing experience to get one. But, have those programs shown that tattoos are bad for humans.
First, when you get a tattoo you can have problems at work because it is something that is not well seen. In some companies and corporations they do not permit employers with tattoos because tattoos can give a bad impression about their company. So, tattoos can inhibit your ability to get a job. On the other hand; some people think that companies and corporations need to respect what their employers do with their body. It in order to have a good workplace where employers can have their tattoos, but they will need to cover them. So, in that way tattoos should not be a problem at work.
Secondly, getting a tattoo has some risks that affect your health. Those risks could be blood-borne diseases. It results because if the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with the blood of an infected person, you can contract a number of serious blood-borne diseases. These include hepatitis C, hepatitis B, tetanus, tuberculosis and HIV the virus that causes AIDS. Another risk is skin infections. Tattoos can lead to local bacterial infections. Typical signs and symptoms of an infection include redness, warmth, swelling and a pus-like drainage. Even though, there are people who claim that it is not going to happen if you go to the right place to get your tattoo because the tattooing process is completely sure.
Third, tattoos cannot allow you to donate blood. According to Hudson,K.L. (n.d.) “donating blood platelets or plasma has always been a noble pursuit to help those in need”. She states that “finding suitable donors has become increasingly more difficult because many people have a tattoo and the blood bank doesn't want to risk accepting contaminated blood”. ( Hudson,K.L. n.d.) Although there is a regulation that says that you can wait a year after your tattoo was applied you can donate blood. But it does not mean that it is a safe process of donating blood because you can transmit a disease to the person that needs the blood.
As a conclusion, to get a tattoo or have one is not a sin, you just need to be conscious that it can carry out some problems in your health and in your job. Also you have to consider that having a tattoo is something that you will have for the rest of your life. It is not a fashion that you can change when you want it, so it will stay forever.
