Can tattoos cause an illness?
I've only heard positive things about tattoos from people I know who have them -- they love the art that they can wear and show off, or not show off. But I read something recently about a woman who developed an autoimmune disorder that her doctor claimed was caused by the ink from her tattoo bleeding through her skin and getting into her bloodstream. Even scarier, when she had a baby, her child ended up with an autoimmune disorder as well that was apparently caused by this tattoo issue. Has anyone heard anything about this kind of problem with tattoos? I wonder if it's a real concern, and if so, we need to make women aware of it.
