Man Dies After Ignoring Warnings Not to Swim With New Tattoo

A Hispanic man died from sepsis when his fresh tattoo wound became infected from swimming in the sea. The unidentified 31-year-old ignored advice given to those with new inkings that they should wait for two weeks before venturing into pools or oceans.

Instead, he swam in the warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico just five days after obtaining a religious cross on his right calf. According to Daily Mail,  because his wound was still fresh, it became contaminated with a flesh-eating bacteria that tore chunks out of his skin and ultimately led to his death. .

The day after he went swimming, he developed a fever, chills and a red rash close to his tattoo, experts wrote in the Case Reports. His condition continued to worsen over the next two days, before he was eventually admitted to hospital.
