When a gunshot victim who has lost a significant amount of blood is rushed to the hospital, doctors must often give him or her a blood transfusion without knowing the appropriate blood type. Only one of the four blood types can safely be given to any patient, so type O, the universal blood type, is in high demand. Now researchers at a Massachusetts startup have found a way to make blood of any type acceptable to any patient by cleaving identifying sugars from the surface of red blood cells. The process is currently in human testing and could be available within five years.

On a kinda side note:
Is it true the needle draws a bit of blood when you tat?
Watching it all happen, I see the inker always 'wiping' the tatted area alot. *PLUS* Does the tat leak blood a bit after the procedure is done?

I don't think the needle takes any blood out when you get one, but you do get some bleeding depending on the person.
