But don’t fret – if your tattoo was obtained within the past 20 years you are almost assured that this is not going to be an issue for you.

Thinking twice about tattoos?
stillfighting wrote:Hi Matt, first let me say, I really do understand you wanting the tat.. but my daughter got one at 18. She had our blessings
She never had a bit of trouble and went to a reputable place to get it.
Then one winter her back started to hurt ( she does not have ms)
She went to the dr and the lymph nodes where the tat is where swollen.
He gave her antibioitcs as a precaution.
and said to rest and use heat.
So for a few yrs.........when it is cold and she is on her feet (working)
it hurts...........the ink got into the nodes..
I read everything I could find before the got the tattoo..
I guess the point I am trying to make...
There are dangers and there are side effects and they can be serious..
No one knows what the long term side effects will be now??
It is a foreign agent to your body.. not worth it imo.
try something temp. then you can change it as often as you want too
