From now on two major tattoo-ink manufacturers in California will have to carry warning labels on health risks of lead and arsenic in tattoo inks.
The labels will have to be carried in the catalogs and on their Internet sites aimed at California customers.
The warnings will include statements that tattoo inks and pigments contain heavy metals, including lead and arsenic, which are “scientifically determined by the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects and other reproductive harm."
First group that filed suit in 2004 against the two companies, as well as seven smaller manufacturers was non-profit group interested in environmental and public health hazards.
The group decided to file suit because the number of people getting tattoos is constantly increasing. Statistics show that 16% of Americans have at least one tattoo, implying as many as four million California adults have one or more, younger adults have even more - 36% of adults 25 to 29 years old say they have at least one tattoo, 13% of teenagers have at least one tattoo.
It is said that tattoo inks contain lead, antimony, arsenic, beryllium, chromium, cobalt, nickel and selenium, and that the public had the right to know how hazardous these substances to human health are.

Doing a tattoo in some unregistered office with someone who has no license is a reason to be worried, always. It can wear so many dangerous things, it can be dangerous because of the some possible infection that you may get. I am worried because this tattooing become so popular and people are doing it just because they saw that someone has it. You should decide to have a tattoo when you know that there is something that you want to do, that there is a reason for this tattoo, not because it is modern. And of course, once you have it, don't forget about tattoo aftercare that is also very important.
