"Tattoos can put you at high risk of bacterial, fungal and viral skin infections. Chances of blood-borne infection also increases through tattoos," Anup Dhir, senior cosmetic surgeon, Apollo Hospital, said in a statement.

"Apart from this, the dyes in a tattoo can cause severe allergic reactions," he added.

Once you get inked, it becomes difficult to get rid of it.

"Tattoos are one of the most difficult plastic surgical problems to treat. Most tattoos leave a faint ghost of the image after removal and older tattoos are more difficult than newer ones to remove," Dhir said.
