Hello!  I currently have 3 tattoos and tomorrow I'm supposed to be adding on to one of them.  Originally my appointment was a few weeks ago but I had to reschedule because I was very, very sick!

 

Now, I'm sick again!  It's not as bad this time though....no fever/chills/aches.  Just congestion and a slightly sore throat (that is better now after some hot water/honey/lemon).  Soooo, should I reschedule again?  :(  Or should I be ok?  Tomorrow will be day 4 of this new cold and I feel sooo much better today than I did yesterday.  I did take some NyQuil and DayQuil - will that affect anything if I feel 100% tomorrow and go for the tattoo?

 

Thanks!

If there's no fever and just congestion, I'd say you'd like do fine but you know you're body best in terms of recovery.  Time under the needle would play a role in the decision for me.  If you're expecting to do a shorter session then it's probably a non issue. If you're planning a 6-7 hour session those can be rough and take a toll on the body.

You should also think about your artist....if you're that sick and contagious he/she I'm sure would prefer that your reschedule.

Best of luck!

I once had a 3 hour session with e coli--didn't know I had it of course, and would definitely not have gone through with it if I'd known.

I'd say email your artist, explaining and being super apologetic.

If you feel better, go for it. Your body will recover.

He' guessed it would probably take 5-6 hours but also mentioned we could do shorter if I needed to so I don't think he'd be upset if I wanted to stop early.  And I'm definitely considering him as well, I don't want to possibly infect anyone which is why I cancelled last time when I was sick with a fever/chills/etc.  But since it's basically just annoying congestion this time I figured I'd get others opinions!  I think if I don't feel better in the morning I call him and see what he prefers.  :)

I've been sick with a nasty head cold during a four hour rib session. It was zero fun but I had traveled for the tattoo and wasn't going to reschedule. I tried to keep my cooties to myself! Being sick sucked all the joy out that session but I healed great. :)  Good luck!

    • @bongsau glad to hear you're hanging in there! if  you're willing to share, I'd love to see pics of that paint job. Sounds super interesting! i went thru a broken engagement back in the late 2000s. We had just bought a condo together and she left me with a single income right when the housing bubble was bursting. Perfect timing. I also had some dark times, but good friends and family helped shine some light on shit and brighten things up. I eventually fell in love again with my current wife of nearly 10yrs. We ended up foreclosing on the condo, like many Americans, coz the mortgage wasn't worth it and my new lady wasn't digging the spot that didn't feel like her own. That said, we got to live there for at least a few months without paying the rent! hahahhahaha... it was kind nice to somewhat feel what actually OWNING a home would be like, not having to pay the bank. Anyways... i guess i'm just pointing out that cons, pros, ups, and downs come with the ticket to ride. That time taught me many lessons about myself and life, in general. Still learning with far to go! Sending the strongest good juju your way, my man! 🙌💨💞
