Think the UK official figures for cancer is 1 in 3 people will get it at some point...we can't avoid everything. Misdiagnosis will kill you faster...and stress.
Based on current incidence rates, 40% of women and 45% of men in Canada will develop cancer during their lifetimes. Current mortality rates indicate that 24% of women and 29% of men, or approximately one out of every four Canadians, will die from cancer.

I heard that DIY tatooers in prison use all sorts of things for ink, (because they aren't allowed it), one of those being burnt plastic...
I have a feeling that form of tatoo outdoes normal ones in cancer causing by far.
The DIY ink you are speaking of is almost always india ink.. mixed with any number of things.. sometimes even ash from burnt toilet paper..
But that's prison ink.. not a tattoo from a licensed artist in a sanitary environment..
