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.

you should be fine to keep taking it. i've tattooed people on presciption blood thinners and had them check with their doctors before i tattooed them to make sure it was ok. i didnt notice much difference in them bleeding while tattooing them.

    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
    • If it is scarring what else could it be? Could it be that the ink is too thick ??
    • Laser removal is not an eraser. You'd still faintly see the tattoo. If it is scarring, then yes, you'd still see the scar, too.
