Baby aspring and Tattoos


Recommended Posts

Ok, so last year, my doctor told me it would be a good idea to take the low dose baby aspirin every day. I guess I had a very minor blockage but they thought I should do it anyway.

So is it ok to continue taking it or do I need to stop before I get a tattoo? It tends to thin the blood a bit. Not like an actual blood thinner but it does thin it some. So for the tattooers or anyone who may know, do I quit them for a while or is it no big deal?

@Johhny I have type two diabetes and part of my daily medication is low dose aspirin. I don't take on the day of the tattoo. I figure missing it for one day isn't going to affect my health and aspirin does thin the blood. Generally speaking I don't mind the sight of blood as long as it's not mine.:D

Thanks @jade1955. I was hoping it wouldnt be a great big deal. I can stop taking it for a while with no worries. It is more a precaution than anything. I just wanted to make sure it wasnt going to be a major problem. I actually think I have an easier time seeing my own blood than someone else's.

    • Hi all, I am new in this industry and i would like to know if there is any platform only for professionals to find guest spots, long term work etc... even for tattoo owners studios to publish job offers for artists. I would like to fins a platform like Linkedin but only for tattoos professionals. HOnestly i do not like to use instagram or facebook for professional stuff and for example tattoodo is more to find clients not offers to work in studios or offers jobs if i am a owner.   Said that i really appreciate you support on it.   Thanks in advance and apologies if i make a mistake on where to posrt my concern   Best, John
    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.
