Hello,

A tattoo can lead to an increased risk of complications like infections. But, you are not at an increased risk compared to other healthy individuals.

Anyway, I would like to know your cardiac ultrasound report in order to be able to give a more professional opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
