If I have mild high blood pressure can I still get a tattoo 140/90?

Yes, risk is low: The risk of elevated blood pressure and a procedure such as a tattoo is that you will have slightly greater bleeding than the norm. Make sure that you are not taking any blood thinning medications at the same time.

It is usually better: to get a tattoo with ink. :) Yes you can get a tattoo if you have high blood pressure but you should see a health care professional to have your high blood pressure treated. It will probably cost about the same as the tattoo and have much better long term outcome!
