Q: Tattoo parlors safe? Expensive?

Are they regulated, use sterile equipment, or would I be coming home with Hepatitis or Aids or something? Anyone have an idea of how much a smallish one would cost?

I have been told by my partner that tatoos in China are suprisingly not much cheeper than Australia. So between 500-1000 rmb for a medium size at a reputable parlour. I am sure you could get cheaper but there is the associated health risks and I woukld be doing lots of research into the sterilisation methods used bbefore I let anyone near me. I did the same before some extensive dental work I had done in China. Hep B & C are the big concerns. I would think it very wise for anyone who visits China to be vacinated for hep B, but hep C can only be prevented by insuring no blood to blood transfer.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
