Your Say

"A tattoo is a permanent reminder of a temporary emotion."

I doubt tattoos cause any more cancer than anything else.

Probably they cause mental degradation; just look at who gets them.

Read the article. No studies done whatosever on large population groups who are heavily taooed as to whether they show a higher incidence of cancer. Such a study would take years, and would have to take into account how long individuals have had their tatoos. Too much work, I suppose. Therefore, this is just another bogus scare like cell-phone brain cancer and second-hand smoke outdoors.
