Subject: RE: Sorta BS: Tattoos & Piercings
just as an afterthought, there has been a considerable upswing recently, in the number of cases of Hep C in the prison population in Canada, related to the common practise of tatooing in those institutions. This, despite the fact that they are sterilizing the needles used. The disease was found not to be transmitted via the needles, but in the ink itself.

Another good reason to think about it.
