Well, this is terrifying.
In what could be bad news for Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus, recent research suggests that tattoo ink is much more dangerous than originally thought. According to a recent report by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, tattoo ink is not only made out of extremely dangerous chemicals, like carcinogens, it also has traces of lead, bacteria, nickel and arsenic. In addition to possibly causing cancer, the ink can damage the body's lymphatic system.
So the next time you feel lame like me for not having one - just refer to this report.
