Online course trains tattoo artists to spot skin cancer

What’s more, young people in particular believe that skin cancer checks are more for the elderly. In order to get through to the youthful demographic, a project called Tatuador Consciente is teaching tattoo artists how to detect signs of melanoma and other skin cancers while they’re inking.
