8 Skin Infection Cases From NY Tattooer – Clients Urged to be Tested

May 11th, 2008
John Portik, of Niagara Falls, has been fined by the health department after 8 cases of skin infection (one being MRSA) were traced back to tattoos performed by him. Although he claims to have worked in a shop, the owners of Hardcore deny having ever heard of him – let alone employed him – and he did most of his tattooing via tattoo parties and in people’s homes. His tattooing equipment has been confiscated and he’s been told to stop tattooing, but anyone who has received a tattoo from John Portik since 2001 should be tested for blood disease since his methods of sanitation cannot be verified.
