hi i am currently training in thailand and have aquired a staph infection on my knee i have been on antibiotics for 3 days and will be at least for 3 more. I have another appointment at the hospital tmrw to see if I will be able to go back to training before I leave on wednesday. As well as continuing my train before i leave i wanted to recieve a traditional bamboo tattoo on my back. The artist are very clean and use steralized needles but Im thinking its is not a good idea to get a tattoo while i currently have an infection. But this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity for an American in Thailand so if it is safe enough i would still like to proceed with the tattoo. My antibiotic cycle will be over wednesday right before i leave would I be able to get a tattoo on wednesday without risking spreading the infection? as i said the infection is on my knee and the tattoo will be on my back, any advise would be greatly appreciated thanks!
