Tatoo and Grave's: Graves' disease is an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism). Nothing, including getting a tatoo, is safe if you have uncontrolled grave's disease. You need to seek help from an endocrinologist to get it under control before you wind up terribly ill. Good luck.
