I've heard the same thing... but then I've also heard that no tattoo ink is really healthy for you. The website for the UV ink supplier in my other post has a whole article about how there is no evidence that UV inks are any more or less harmful than regular inks. Dunno.

hippieinaustin: i love love loveee your let it be tattoo!!
aww, thanks! that one is pretty important to me. i know it sounds silly, especially since i LOVE the beatles so much, but it actually just came from years of journaling. i kept noticing the phrase coming up in my writing, and figured it was about time i put it on me.
it really is a great reminder when i'm down or something. helps to remember that things will all work out the way they're supposed to.
"That's the big thing about education. People can be book smart, but not really intelligent about anything else. A lot of times they just taking in all this information and regurgitate it. It's much more important to process it and personalize it. To apply it to your world, to your life. You have to walk the walk, or you can't really report about it honestly."
