    According to my information that the Skin cancer is caused due to sticking the tattoos in the Skin, and many other causes for the skin care in which the skin cancer will be caused by Sun.

    a million people get skin cancer and i am sure only a small percentage has tattoos!! i am not crazy about tattoos but it is not the ink that causes cancer. sun causes cancer. if you use proper sunscreen over all your body including tattoos you are protecting your self from skin cancer.

    I'll probably get into trouble here for this, but I don't believe in avoiding the sun completely. There is no life without sunshine. Of course excess is dangerous. But some studies even show that complete avoidance of UV rays promotes certain other types of cancer. Many other bodily functions benefit from moderate sun exposure.

    My real aim is to be balanced. Between sunscreen, antioxidants internally and externally and moderate UV exposure things shouldn't be too bad.

    I agree with SiameseCat since avoiding the Sun is also not good for health. Sun's rays are an enriched source of vitamin D which is one of the most essential components that the skin requires. Sadly, not everyone is aware of this and feel that moving out in the Sun can be carcinogenic. It is advised to be in the Sun for about 15 minutes every week so that the skin can soak the goodness of the vitamin D enriched source.

    you definately need sun. i am talking about over exposure with no sunscreen or sunblock on your skin. the sun gives us life, lifts our moods, allows flowers to grow. you are right Siamese cat you need to have balance.

    It's to read from others too that excess is bad. But total avoidance of the sun is also a form of excess. It's hardly surprising that many people get depressed in winter.
    As you say vencasand, there's no life without sun light.

    Protect your head with a wide-brimmed hat, covering your face, ears, and neck. If you choose a baseball cap, make sure to safeguard your ears and neck with sunscreen.

    ironically simply avoiding the sun limits your body's access to vitamin d as well...and that is one of your best defenses against skin cancer. So if you you avoid the sun please make sure you get enough d in a supplement form
