My husband is uninsured and possibly has a cardiac condition. He keeps blacking out with no warning and whenever he goes to the ER with injuries they just patch him up and send him on his way. Last ...
i dont see how that would affect anything. it would kinda be like saying ' hey dont ever get a cut on your skin '
if you arent really good at handling pain, it might not be the best idea since the process can be taxing on the body. it might raise your heart rate, but your ICD should take care of that right? wouldnt really be much different than running.
best info would be from a tattoo artist, someone who has been doing it a while
YES YOU CAN GET A TATTOO! The New Neuma Tattoo Machines are your answer my Artist uses the New Guns with 30 yrs of artwork he also has the ICD in his chest. This Neuma machine is air powered read about this New tattoo machine I have two tattoos now this year. If you are on blood thinners avoid very large tattoos due to bleeding start medium to small and never tattoo over your PaceMaker (ICD) find an Artist that uses the new guns........ GET INKED!
yes but i wouldent get it 2 close to the ICD
Infections that can theoretically be transmitted by the use of unsterilized tattoo equipment or contaminated ink include surface infections of the skin, herpes simplex virus, tetanus, staph, fungal infections, some forms of hepatitis, tuberculosis, and HIV. People with tattoos are nine times more likely to be infected with hepatitis C, according to a study by Robert Haley, MD, chief of epidemiology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
Consult your doctor.

NOT recommended because some have to get theirs replaced every five years an the ink can cause severe infections, not to mention cause other issues. I would be surprised if the tattoo place would even consider doing that. But its your choice. Best of luck to you an what ever you decide
