while taking plavix and aspirin (blood thinners), because i had a brain aneurysm stented and coiled, would it still be okay to get tattoos? or will this make me bleed too much some how?
Welcome to justanswer and thank you for your question.
Well, I would not advise you have a tattoo while using blood thinners as this will increase the risk of bleeding.
These pills have effect on clotting can lead to slower healing therefore greater chance of infection.
You should not stop taking plavix and aspirin at your own. Ideally i would not recommend you to go for tattoos while using blood thinners.
Please discuss this issue with your doctor.
