I think the danger comes from hand to hand shocks that pass thru your chest.This type of shock can mess up heart timing and kill the pacemaker.Hand to hand shocks can make your chest and ache for hours.Most welders run 80 volts open circuit.Keep your gloves dry.

MIG welding would be down around 20 volts in most cases but amps is the push of current.

Mig runs lower open circuit but you wont be touching the electrode like you do in stick welding.Kneeling on the ground and loading a new electrode with a bare hand will usually get you a shock.When the arc is broken there must be a high inductive voltage present.I think that electric shocks are bad news for pace makers.

Never got a shock putting an electrode in but in school we had to hold the electrode in the stinger with one hand and ground with the other. That gives a good shock. It was done to show that a welder won't electrocute you. The teacher stopped doing it because he got a higher than normal shock once.
