Re: tattoos causing cancer

They lied to you. Use your Google machine and look it up yourself. This is part of one of the 123,000,000 results that came up in Google when I searched for it:
“There’s never been a medical study showing an increased risk of skin cancer and tattoos,” Dr. Brian Horvath from Horvath Dermatology said. “As recently as 2007, there are only 13 cases in the medical literature about melanoma skin cancer arising in tattoo.”

Of course this does not mean that you won't look like a low-class trailerpark whore with poor decision-making abilities if you get a tattoo, but it is doubtful that you will get cancer from it.

Re: tattoos causing cancer

if the tattoo is done wrong (ie; not clean) or if you don't take care of it, you can easily get an infection.. But cancer is a whole different thing.
