HIV via tattoo???
is it possible to be infected with HIV via the tattoo's needle ?
well , that what happened to an australian tourist who went to Bali for a holiday , got a tattoo there
came back home and later on found out she/he got HIV
at least , that what he/she claimed
clinically , is it possible?
let's go to the basic here. how does HIV transmitted? occay , easy as abc ... number one.. blood to blood... mother to baby and the famous unprotected sex
let's look at how tatoos being "tattooed" on human body..
they use a special needle to paint the artwork on the skin
when we talk about needle..
it's a nature of the needle to prick
and of course ,during the process of tattooing ...
the needle pricked the skin a lot..
contacted with the fat tissue.. and also small vessels
meaning.. anything from the needle.. could go inside the vessel
so , in this case..
one sunday morning..
a HIV person went to the tattoo shop
and got a tattoo on his ass..
and the next person came in into the same shop
let's say some australian tourist he is..
got a tattoo as well...
and apparently the tattoo master use the same needle as he used for the hiv infected customer
and he forgot to clean and wash the needle thoroughly ...
there was a big chance.. the second customer could get the HIV as well
easily infected from the unsterilized needle
the same one used on the HIV patient
if that the case
he's such an unfortunately guy
moral of the story , dont get any tattoo...
but then.. same scenario also could happen at the barber shop or the sallon
when the barber use the same blade for shaving...
something to think about...
