UK public health group, Environmental health group, The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, The CIEH, all of such internatiional instution call to ban cheap tattoo kits being sold online cos it leads to so many skin problems and other interactive infection with disease. The group is concerned DIY Tattoo Kits often don’t come with appropriate safety instructions or aftercare advice, which could lead to infections – or even death – if the tattoos are applied wrongly.

The biggest problem is that some tattoo inks being used are not real tattooing ink and many people take a reaction to it. The DIY tattooers do not employ hygienic practices, there are many infections which may be transmitted but perhaps would have no initial indications.

The tattoo needles they sell are sterilised before being blister packed. The company also sells other hygiene and aftercare products to reduce infection risks, and gives aftercare instructions.

The problems lies in some untrained tattoo addicts cos they don’t have any professional tattoo knowledge and skills. They even don’t know how to recognize defective and licenced tattoo kits, what to do after tattooing, how to protect from being infected.
