In Discovery Travel channel, there is a program called “Miami Ink”, it tells many stories about people getting tattoos. Despite the way they tried to make it sound like fun and cool, I still don’t see any meaning of getting a tattoo. I don’t think anyone I know has a tattoo, too.
The figure above is an ad for body piercing. It shows that the risk of body piercing is very very low, compared to many other risks we face everyday. That small number really is insignificant. However, there is a fatal logical flaw in it. If you put the death as a result of body piercing on top of the human population as the denominator, you get such results.
