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.

Is septicemia the same thing as "blood poisoning"?

We can say

If someone already had blood poisoning , could it have happened if they got a tattoo ?

Tattoo side effects

Hepatitis_b
Tattoos can cause skin problems such as granulomas (red bumps caused by inflammation) and keloid scars, and they can provoke allergic reactions, making skin itch and break out. These allergic reactions can occur with no warning, years after you get your tattoo. Getting a tattoo also puts you in danger of getting diseases such as AIDS, tetanus, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, infections
