Tattoos, when it would be inadvisable to get them

Deciding to get a tattoo is an important choice because a tattoo is something that will remain on one's skin forever.

Tattooing is also a choice to be made safely, both in terms of equipment and hygienic conditions. But that is not all, because there are cases in which tattooing is not recommended or even avoided.

Often these are pathologies that advise against getting a tattoo, while at other times it may be inadvisable in certain parts of the body or when taking certain medications. (Source: epicentro.iss.it)
