Can you tattoo on top of varicose veins?
The answer is yes, however, there are some risks associated with this. While tattoos can have risks associated with them in general, someone with varicose veins may be exposed to higher risk factors. A major concern for many is whether the bulging vein may affect the appearance of the tattoo, and this unfortunately does occur. When tattooing over varicose veins, the appearance of the tattoo itself may be disfigured. Additional risks are related to the varicose veins themselves. When tattooing on top of varicose veins, the risk of them bursting and leading to medical complications is higher. This is due to the extensive pressure that is applied when receiving a tattoo. The risks of the veins bursting can lead to bleeding, swelling, and possible infection. Ultimately, with the risk factors outlined above, it is a smart idea to avoid receiving a tattoo on top of varicose veins.
