Please show me a picture of what a red line going up a persons arm from blood poisoning looks like?

Lymphangitis

Lymphaigitis
Here's your picture. It's actually the inflamed lymphatic tracks ("lymphangitis") usually from a strep infection. Please don't self-diagnose, but get seen if you suspsect you have a nasty infection. It would be a shame to have you get really sick.

Tiny red line from tattoo, is this blood poisoning?

See a dermatologist

Sepsis
It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

that wound has gotten infected and the infection is going up throughout the lymph vessel and glands following what looks like a blood vessel pattern. You need to see your doctor for proper antibiotics and be sure to be up-to-date with your tetanus shot.

Is blood poisoning the same as sepsis?

Yes

Heart
Many people refer to sepsis as "blood poisoning". It means that bacteria and/or fungi have invaded the blood stream allowing them to travel to many internal organs like the heart or the brain. If untreated a person with this condition may go into septic shock. Antibiotic treatment is needed to treat this condition along with careful monitoring in the hospital
