Is it safe to have a tattoo after triple heart bypass surgery?

Is it safe to have a tattoo after triple heart bypass surgery? I want to get a tattoo done but had triple bypass surgery almost two years ago, would having a tattoo affect my blood pressure, my medication etc, I had two heart attacks in the last two years. Also diabetic I will of course speak to my cardio but wondered if anyone else had one done.. Thanks.. and for the idiot that sent the stupid answer, hey, I am probably fitter than you now! At least they found out what was wrong with me, and unlike some my brain still functions:-) Bet you would have a job running a marathon, easy peasy for me:-) Go Figure!

i wouldn't get a tattoo....being a diabetic also affects your ability to heal. A tatto is just a pretty open wound. But i would still contact your doctor. they usually know best.

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

My brother had gastric bypass surgery almost 7 months ago. As he healed he had scar tissue that pinched off the opening for secretions to drain from the old stomach. They put in a drain until the swelling goes down and they can do the surgery to fix the problem. Now he's having a problem in that his heart rate is never under 100, and he gets dizzy and he's very shaky ? Any help or advice you can offer would be much appreciated! Thanks, Concerned Sister
