Can someone with cancer get a tattoo?
I heard that you can't get tattoos when you have cancer, because of the thinning of blood. Is that true? Please state references. I'm not willing to go off of personal opinions.

heck get what ever you want you or they deserve it! but seriously it depends on your treatment you could get an infection because your immune is low due to your illness and treatment

yea you can

Some cancer patients actually get tattooed at the hospital as part of their treatment when undergoing some types of spot radiation. They are usually tiny little dot tattoos that help the doctors who administer the radiation get the equipment lined up correctly.

it would depend on your treatment and the type of cancer- ask your doctor. lol and dont take the first peron's advice and ask the tattoo parlor...

It is true that if they currently are recieving treatment for cancer a tattoo is not recomended. Chemo therapy greatly reduces the bodies ability to heal, and fend off infections. This is because chemo is not site specific, but infact attacks all of your bodie, hense loosing your hair, and feeling like you are going to die. If you went out to get a tattoo, the chances of infection, or excessive blood loss are very very high.

Your best source of RELIABLE information on this issue would be the doctor that is treating you. Some cancer treatments compromise the immune system so I suppose that means an increased chance of infection.

I think that the easiest thing to do would be to call the tattoo shop and ask them. Let them know what meds your on, and see what they say.
