Sun Safety Ink! A Sun Safety Program for the Tattoo Community

Over 3.5 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancers occur annually and melanoma rates have doubled in the last 30 years, burdening the nation's health system. Klein Buendel, Inc. (KB) proposes to develop Sun Safety INK! (SSI!), a skin cancer prevention program targeted to clients of licensed tattoo studios because tattoo aftercare recommendations can include sun protection for tattoos, and studios offer an opportunity to reach younger adults who are significantly more likely to sunburn and less likely to practice sun safety. The study will assess the effectiveness of SSI! at (1) increasing full-body comprehensive sun protection practices; (2) decreasing sun burning and tanning; and, (3) decreasing positive attitudes regarding tanning and tanning attractiveness.
