First, my deepest apologies for crossposting to so many groups. Sorry.
Now, can someone please give me a straight answer as to what is the risk
for disease in getting a tattoo? I am primarily interested in HIV, but
would like to hear about any agents you might think are appropriate to
the discussion. How are these risks controlled? Can we expect to
suddenly see a cluster of 20-somethings bleeding out with Marburg? In a
few years will we see a sudden spike in AIDS among the early 30s age
group? What exactly (or at least confidently) is/are the risk?
Thanking you in advance for your shared wisdom, and assuring you that my
next post here will have more to do with my thesis and less with
residual-end of the quarter curiosity. :)
