Explanation:

Hepatitis B and HIV-AIDS can be transmitted from one person to another through tattooing. Hepatitis B is a viral infection that affects the liver and can be transmitted through the use of contaminated needles or equipment during tattooing. HIV-AIDS is a viral infection that attacks the immune system and can also be transmitted through the use of contaminated needles or through contact with infected blood during tattooing.

Chikungunya, on the other hand, is a mosquito-borne viral disease and is not transmitted through tattooing. Therefore, statement 1 is incorrect.
