Most People With Tattoos Don't Get Proper
Care Instructions says this Opinion Article
"Only seven states require tattoo artists to
give customers public health-approved aftercare instructions." By Cari
Nierenberg, Live Science
Such instructions can
prevent skin infections after a person gets inked, according to the
paper, published online today (Nov. 4) in the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA) Dermatology.
Wes Wood responds more.
This "paper" looks like writing to publish or perish, looking for a
subject "not much written about."
The wording "Only 7 States" is
prejudicial to cause you to think the other states are negligent and need to
get on the ball.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
It is to other states' credit that they do not provide
wrong information about healing tattoos, i.e. inadequate, incorrect and
wrong medical advice.
Unimax has been publishing healing descriptions since 1994, well
documented in the medical literature on how to heal superficial tattooing
surface wounding. Many instructions we have seen are "voodoo" because
authors think that something is different about wounds made by tattooing,
that they do not follow medically proven healing staging. Those authors
suspend their own knowledge and assume tattooists know better - they don't.
Tattoos heal in spite of what
anyone recommends not because of those
