Tattoo Ink Cancerous? What’s in your ink!
One in five tattoo inks in Australia contain carcinogenic chemicals, according to a report published this week.
The report comes from the government’s National Industrial Chemical’s Notification and Assessment Scheme.
83 per cent of the black inks tested showed signs of a group of chemicals – polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – known to be carcinogens.
These numbers are a major concern for the tattoo industry, especially for those buying inks online and self inking.
