University of Alabama: Tats can help ward off illness.

     UA researchers say tats are good for your health.

     Really.

     They worked with customers at tattoo shops in Tuscaloosa and Leeds.

Saliva samples from the businesses’ customers were obtained both before and after their tattoo experience. The researchers analyzed the samples, measuring levels of immunoglobulin A, an antibody that lines portions of our gastrointestinal and respiratory systems, and cortisol, a stress hormone known to suppress immune response.
“Immunoglobulin A is a front line of defense against some of the common infections we encounter, like colds,” Lynn said.
