    Want to know whats potentially more dangerous - tattoo ink

    A report this week from the Australian governmentís National Industrial Chemicalís Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) shows whatís in the ink thatís under the skin of more than 2 million Australians and about 100 million Europeans. And itís not pretty.

    The report found 471 different tattoo inks likely to be used in Australia made up of 89 unique chemicals. They interviewed 22 professional tattoo artists and sourced 49 specific tattoo inks likely to be used in Australian tattoo parlours for detailed chemical analysis.

    Of the 49 inks NICNAS tested, only four complied with the European standards.

    The major concern was the presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), a group of chemicals known to be carcinogens. PAHs were found in more than one-fifth of the samples tested and in 83% of the black inks tested.

    Perhaps it would be simpler – and a lot less time consuming for the rest of us – if the egg-heads came up with a list of substances which weren't suspected of being carcinogenic.

    Bet it would be a bloody short list!!
