No problem: As long as you go with a professional tattoo artist there is not going to be any problem.

Tattoo: Tattooing itself should not be a problem. It would likely raise your BP. However, more important question is Why is your blood pressure low? This could be related to volume, adrenal issues or perhaps a thyroid problem.

A female asked:

Is it advisable to get a tattoo with low blood pressure and aenemia as well as currently having period?

No, If you have had: many tattoos and are very comfortable with the process, you would probably be ok. But if you have never had a tattoo, or have any difficulty with the process being painful or unpleasant, you should wait. If you have low BP, anemia, and are actively bleeding with your period, you could end up passing out during the procedure... Good Luck. Visit my website http://CardioGauge.com for heart health...
