This post comes out of a conversation I had with my friend. She is thinking about getting a second tattoo. The picture in the post is of her current tattoo. She told me of how she and her friend went together to get their tattoos. She asked me to write this post because she is wanting to make people were aware of things you need to consider in terms of disability and tattooing.
Do you have allergies to latex? If you do, and are considering getting a tattoo there is some steps you should do first. Call the tattoo parlours and explain your allergies find out if they use latex or vinyl gloves. You need to educate yourselves because really do you want to end up with a trip to the hospital with an allergic reaction.
Other Things to Note
if you have any form of sensory issue and can’t feel the area of placement and won’t be able to feel the tattoo because of this, reputable tattoo places will not tattoo when you can’t feel because of issues of infections and will ask you to change where it is placed.
