Avatar f tn Even so afterwards I got worried about HIV and Hep C. I have had an HIV antibody test at 10 weeks, 3 months and 6 months ... All were negative. A 10 week HCV test was negative but my 6 month HCV was reactive. Subsequent HCV RNA PCR was negative and not detected. 1. If I did get Hep C from tattoo could that affect my negative 6 month HIV test? 2. Do I have Hep C? 3. Could the 6 month HCV antibody test be a false positive? RIBA test is currently unavailable due to some recall.
Avatar f tn so say if someone who is hiv positive just got a tattoo and then 1 minute later someone else gets a tattoo with the the same needle it is no risk?
Avatar m tn My concern is HIV and Hepatitis C.I m vaccinated for hepatitis A and B as well. The tattoo was done with sterile needles opened in front of me, gloves where used at all the time by tattoo artist and color was taken from big bottles in new small color wells and dropped in trash along with needles after tattooing. My concern is because I have not seen the guy using autoclave machine for tattoo machine (gun) itself and tattoo tube (grip).
Avatar f tn I had a bamboo tattoo done in thailand a few months ago - The tattoo didn't bleed and was on a very fleshy part of my body. I ordered a home HIV test, when I did the test at 8 weeks the results came up negative, the only symptoms iv experienced are a slight cold that I thought was hayfever when it started. When I go back to my doctors in a few weeks whats that chances the results will be positive? Its all I can think about?
Avatar f tn Could the fact I might have gotten HCV effect my HIV test result if I was infected simultaneously ... Is my 6 month HIV test conclusive irregardless of the HCV? 2. Why did the HCV antibody test change from negative to positive? 3. Do I have Hep C? Or could the second antibody test be a false positive? I have no other risk factors (in a 20 year marriage with only sex partner I have ever had), no drug use, etc 4. Dr.
Avatar f tn Quick question. I'm getting sick of the anxiety of a possible HIV exposure following this tattoo. Today is day 25 after the risk, I want to get some solid answers at this point. I'm still overseas at this time and the only test I can get is the HIV antibodies test. I see so much differing information out there but will this test at least give me a fairly good idea of my HIV status?
Avatar f tn I work in a Max. Security HIV prison 90% of our inmate population is HIV+. While conducting a "shake down" i was stuck really deep with a homemade inmate tattoo gun. What is my risk for HIV and HEP ABC our nursing staff is a joke..and I need a new doctor, just want some advice..
Avatar f tn Hello. I'm a little ansious about something. I'm a tattoo artist from Brazil and during my tattoo career I've been pricked by tattoo needles during work. I have small black dots in my finger. It was superficial and didn't bleed and i was also using gloves. This never bothered me in the past, but these days I'm thinking about it and it's causing me a lot of stress.
Avatar f tn I have about 1/4 of my body covered in tattoos and I tend to bleed a little during the tattoo process and I was just worried about passing it through blood since I still have work that is yet unfinished and I don't want to infect anyone else although my tattoo shop is extremely sanitary and clean I just don't want to risk it.

Avatar f tn Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air (tattoo needle ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are only 3 ways to get hiv.
Avatar m tn Hello doctor. On 8/09 I got a tattoo at a guys house. 3 weeks later I developed a sore throat,stuffy nose and a headache. I also see a few white spots in my inner cheek. Im paranoid and scared I got hiv from the tattoo. I didn't see him open the needles and afraid if he reused the ink. At 4 weeks I got a naat test and it was negative. At 10 weeks I got a elisa oral test and was negative. what are the chances of that test turning positive.? Are my test conclusive?
Avatar f tn 1). if anybody used infected(HIV+) needle or ink, second person get high risk to get HIV+ in tattoo case ? 1). How much percentage, we can trust these test? 3). Can i believe these report or should i test after 6 month? Please suggest me right thing.
Avatar n tn Because one day my wife took my father to the hospital the nurse had asked him the series of questions about him And said your HIV positive and he was drunk of course and nodded his head yes! My wife looked at him like what he was shaky and having withdraws from alcohol so he did not care. My wife said to the nurse hes HIV positive she said well thats what it says here. So eventually I contacted him and asked him and he denied it to the fullest. So i asked him are you dad infact HIV positive!
Avatar n tn Therefore, my questions are 1) Is there any risk of contracting HIV by getting a tattoo? 2) Can the HIV virus survive in tattoo ink? 3) Can the virus survive on the needle? 4) Can the virus survive in the needle holding tube? 5) How soon should I take an HIV test? I really would appreciate responses to this question from Doctors on the medical team as well as anyone else.
Avatar m tn On 27th of this month I got tattoo at Thailand. My concern is HIV and Hepatitis C.I m vaccinated for hepatitis A and B as well. The tattoo was done with sterile needles opened in front of me, gloves where used at all the time by tattoo artist and color was taken from big bottles in new small color wells and dropped in trash along with needles after tattooing.

Avatar f tn I didn't find out I was pregnant until about 20 weeks, I got a tattoo on my upper inside of my arm and it's pretty big while I was 18 weeks . But I'm Fine. I was scared when I found out too lol I thought I could've hurt the baby. But the reason they tell you not to get tattoo while preggo is bc of different types of HIV you can get from needles! You're Fine girl. Just don't take another chance.
