Default Old Neighbor,

My old neighbor contracted hepatitis C- from a tatoo. He confided to me in me a while back.
Think that is what it was, Hepatitis of some sort or another, this I do remember, because I was so shocked. This was a while back so I do not and cannot remember anymore.
Whatever type of hepatitis it was it was incurable.
John owned his own heating and cooling business. He was pretty outraged and angry about this back the last time I saw him in 2001. He moved away to Atlanta.[quote=martell13;31478517]I really could care less what people think about me,because when someone else life is at stake, and i am the paramedic on shift, believe me those people i have helped do not care. I am just amused how ignorant people can be. I guess it is my yankee way of thinking, and it is not being disrespectful but since matttx was so quick to judge...[/QUOT

I am sorry for that, it does happens that there are some tattooers that do not follow established guidelines. Hepatitis is a horrible disease that can be contracted and it could be B or C. Hopefully he is doing well. Professional shops follow guidelines so things like this don't happen. Its very important to really do your homework if anyone is planning to get a tattoo.

Default Hepatitis,

Poor John I do no know how he is coming along as I haven't seen him in over ten years.
I do remember his telling me that it was not curable, was an incurable disease. I was so shocked at this news, our kids went to school together, he was a next door neighbor.[quote=martell13;31496013]

Sorry to strike a nerve. It just sounded like a bunch of whining because others don't like the "art" on your body.

If you want to smoke, drink or ink your body then more power to you. Just don't expect everyone to be supportive.

A little late to the game, but...the difference between people with tattoos and those without is that those of us with tattoos don't care that you don't have any.

Exactly. I don't have tattoos, but I'd much rather associate with tattooed people than close-minded judge bags who look down on others who are different than them. In my line of work I see people with and without tattoos, and there is no difference between the two. My wife has tattoos and she runs an animal rescue shelter.

Hipsters have LSC? I don't think you can use the LSC for pabst blue ribbon. You are so wrong.
