One of the common questions before getting a tattoo is whether it is ok to get a tattoo if you’re sick. There are lots of reasons why you shouldn’t get yourself tattooed during your illness. First of all, your immune system isn’t at 100%, and getting tattooed at this point is just not a good idea. You’re gonna need your all strength and your white blood cells to heal the tattoo, and this is something your body clearly won’t be able to do if it’s already in a battle against bacteria and viruses.
Second thing to keep in mind is the fact, that it’s really inconsiderate if you bring your germs into the studio and risk passing your sickness onto other people there and particularly your tattooist. You wouldn’t want others to get sick because of you, would you?
Last of all, people who are sick usually tend to experience greater pain, when they’re being tattooed. My opinion? If you’re sick, just stay home and save it for another day. So if you have an appointment at the tattoo studio, just call and reschedule for when you get healthy again.
