You should consider What Poets and Tattoo Artists Have in common Before you Get That First Tattoo
Nevertheless, as a poet I always have concerns about the kind of paper I use, the quality of my ink, the mindset that i have for writing, and the environment that i am creating my poems in. I strive to make Eco Tattoo London those circumstances as perfect as possible. I hate coping with writer’s block which is like a nasty skin infection that just won’t go away that i keep scratching at, and wishing it away. If i only had practiced some common sense and avoided drinking, tried to write when in a good mood, done more brainstorming, had the right materials at hand or slotted enough time to accomplish today’s writing goal, then the words would be flowing from my pen.
One contaminant particularly concerning is the family of bacteria called nontuberculous Mycobacteria (NTM). (NTM)and other mycobacteria have been associated with pulmonary disease resembling tuberculosis, lymphadenitis, skin disease, or disseminated disease. M. chelonae, another NTM species which is a fast growing bacteria that can be found in tap water and has been linked to a number of serious health issues such as lung disease, joint infection and eye damage. M. chelonae infections most commonly occur in immunosuppressed patients but can also be seen in otherwise healthy individuals. Infections are often difficult to diagnose as they can look like a mere allergic reaction. NTM infections usually require treatments which often last six months or more. Some of the antibiotics used can cause unpleasant side effects such as nausea or gastrointestinal problems. Without prompt medical treatment these infections can spread beyond the tattoo and risk becoming a secondary infection.
A recent outbreak of illnesses linked to contaminated tattoo inks were reported in america in 2012. FDA’s CORE (Coordinated Outbreak Response and Evaluation) Network initiated an investigation with state and local health departments. The investigation began in January 2012 where seven people in Monroe County, New york were confirmed to have NTM infections. All cases where linked to the same tattoo artist who confirmed to have used the same brand of ink on each person infected. The infections occurred on new tattoos resulting in red bumps appearing soon after the tattoo had healed. Twelve more cases of the NTM infection were later linked to the same tattoo artist. Tests later discovered the water used to dilute the tattoo ink was the cause of the NTMcontamination. In Australia a thirty two year old man obtained extensive tattoos on his thigh and arm by a tattoo artist in Sydney. Three weeks later he developed skin lesions and sought treatment from his local GP. After treatment the lesions showed no sign of improvement and he soon became extremely sensitive to any touch near the tattooed areas.
A skin biopsy later confirmed contamination by Mycobacterium chelonae. As the affected area of skin was so substantial, covering around about ten per cent of his body surface, surgery was not an option. Systemic antimicrobial therapy was started immediately as the organisms are extremely resistant to most antimicrobials. The treatment was continued for four months finally resulting in a significant improvement. Some deep scarring occurred but no recurrence of the infection was present. A second skin biopsy demonstrated no further mycobacterial growth. Tattoos are perhaps the most popular way for young people to make a style statement. A few years back, the tattooing arena was quite small, with common patterns and the inscription of names being the only designs or the most popular designs.

Style, they say, is something unique/ special/ personal to every individual and everyone has personality traits or a certain lifestyle that they want should reflect in the tattoo designs they sport on various parts of their body.

The latest trend is therefore custom design tattoos.
