4 Your Health: Schools not equipped for serious health issues; leaving tattoos off the resume.

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- Teens thinking about getting a tattoo or body piercing should know the potential consequences and risks.

The American Academy Of Pediatrics advises teens and their parents to check that a salon is regulated by the state and uses safe practices to reduce the risk of infections. Also be sure your teen's immunizations are up to date and they are not taking medications that lower immunity.

It is also important to consider the long-term ramifications of getting a tattoo. In a 2014 survey 76 percent of the participants said they thought their tattoo or piercing had hurt their chances of getting a job.

Parents question care of children at school

Many parents are not confident that their child's school is equipped to handle serious health issues.

That's according to a poll from the New University Of Michigan.

While most parents were believed the schools could provide first aid for cuts, scrapes, and other minor issues, they were less certain about a school's ability to respond to an emergency, like an asthma attack.

And only 38 percent were convinced schools could help a student with a mental health problem.
