It is quite obvious that we all do things in our lives that we may either completely approve of or regret. Usually, there are no grey areas on this one. These changes are going to be there forever, whether we like it or not. People often pierce their spouse’s names on them only to live to regret that the tattoo were to last longer than the relationship itself. Tattoos are not something to indulge in and forget, they are a permanent mark of pride or disgrace, whatever we choose it to be. Also, not everyone can afford the costly treatments nor would like to undergo the entire ordeal to remove a tattoo. So just before you actually jump into the cesspool, here are some factsheets that you may like to refer to, which will help you decide on whether or not to take a step forward.
The stature of âcoolnessâ that is attributed to people who are tattooed is common. But this leads to a lifelong contract of bodily modifications that are pretty much permanent in nature. We also have a long list of diseases, which are borne by the ink in the tattoo that causes them. Letâs say cancer, diabetes and many of the blood borne diseases to name a few.
Those already suffering from diabetes must consult their doctors before plunging in, for the simple reason that even so much as a simple scratch may prove to be quite dangerous in a diabetic body. Dirty needles used to pierce are another prevalent fear in tattoo bearers since you may have the danger of contracting diseases like Hepatitis and even HIV.
There may also be one of the possibilities, wherein, you are under certain medications that completely work paradoxically with tattoos. However, unreasonable it may sound but in case of injuries you will have to consider the hemoglobin levels and the ability of the blood to clot as thinning of blood can prove to be quite fatal. You may have read in portals about the drugs used by many clients. But these drugs, which are either pain killing or provide a thicker surface of the skin, rendering it toned, do affect the healing process of the skin post the tattoo and this is a proven fact.
Additionally, if you decide to stop medication just before your tattoo session you are making a big mistake already because you have no clue what is the kind of effect the tattoo is going to have on your body. Consulting a doctor at this stage is highly advisable. No matter how adventurous it sounds, itâs still your own body you will be tampering with.
