tattoos and ms bad idea?

Postby Youarethecure » Sun May 04, 2014 11:10 am

So I want to get a full sleeve done to my left arm. Its all going to centralize around a dark snake and an orange ribbon.

Is there any reason I should not have this done? Is it bad to get the ink and crap into my system?

Thanks,

Chris

each to his own. but keep in mind this whole ms thing puts us on a slippery slope as it is. I wouldn't chance it myself. but again, each to his own.

Some tattoos, because of their shape, can interact with the magnetic field of an MRI to produce localized (and painful) heating of the skin.

Did you try searching prior discussions on tattoos?

I say get the sleeve. Why live in fear? Just enjoy life.

I actually think tattoos are ugly, but that's besides the point.

Something else to consider... people change, tattoos don't.
