could this occur
Jun 21, 2004
I got a tattoo a month ago. my question is if the tattoo artist had a small cut between the area of their forearm to their wrist,could I get infected with hiv or hepatitis if the area of the cut touched the tattoo while the tattoo was being made
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would not be concerned at all about the circumstances you describe.
