Medical History

Medical History is necessary information for me to have in order to assess whether or not you are eligible to have a cosmetic tattoo procedure and the best time to have it done based on medications or previous procedures.  This is one of the forms you will fill out at your scheduled appointment and will be kept on file.

The following are the most important factors when considering any cosmetic tattoo procedure and the reasons for concern:

  • Cancer -  patients should never have a cosmetic tattoo procedure done during treatment.  Past cancer history is OK, but you will need to wait 1 year after finishing any chemo therapy or radiation.

  • Cold Sores - will require a prescription from a medical professional to be taken 3-4 days before and after any lip tattoo.  If you are prone to cold sores and do not take prescription medication, you WILL get cold sores on the mouth.

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia - will cause pigment to fade to orange, this can be avoided using the proper pigment necessary for correcting orange as long as I know prior to the procedure.

  • Keloid Scars - if you are prone to keloid scarring, there is a good chance that your cosmetic tattoo will do the same.  I have had some cases where clients with minimal keloid tendencies have had no problems, however there is no guarantee.

  • Dermatitis/Eczema - pigment will fade faster due to the presence of broken capillaries under the skin's surface.

  • Epilepsy - only have a cosmetic tattoo if not active.

  • Hypoglycemia - please come to your appointment with a full stomach to avoid low blood sugar.

  • Heart Condition - you will need permission from your health care professional.

  • Hemophilia - can be a very serious condition, I will not perform any cosmetic tattoo procedure.

  • Pregnancy - While there are no reported cases of fetal damage from cosmetic tattoo, I choose not to expose clients to unnecessary risk and subsequently will not perform any cosmetic tattoo procedure during pregnancy.
