    Tattoos carry hepatitis C risk

    Tattoos carry hepatitis C risk

    If you're planning on getting a tattoo, make sure it's from a professional and not a friend because ink work by amateurs may carry a risk of Hepatitis C, says a new report.

    In an analysis of several dozen past studies, researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that tattoos from non-professionals appear to increase the risk of a possible bloodborne liver infection.

    By contrast, there is no evidence that tattoos done by professionals carried such a risk.

    Hepatitis C remains a major public health problem in the US with between 75% and 85% of people infected with the disease developing chronic infection that can lead to serious diseases such as cirrhosis and liver cancer.
