So, now the most powerful nation is running out of blood. They must have stored the blood sucked out of the innocents in Iraq for future use, future perfect America, isn’t it, just like slowly gobbling up the gulf oil and saving the home wells for the future. Anyway, there is a real slump of blood supply, as they say, and to fill the gap they’ve even allowed fresh tattooed donors to share few droplets of blood, in case the tattoo gun have left any.
The Community Blood Council of New Jersey has scrapped the one year ban imposed on donors with fresh tattoos following the instructions given by the American Association of Blood Banks. As tattoos have entered the mainstream, the shortfall in blood donors was obvious as most of the youngsters, who’re in fact the potential donors, too, are getting more and more ink.
