Yes: I'm a tattoo buff and have two of my own. Be sure it's what you want and wait a few years; then if your wishes haven't changed at all, check with your hematologist and your tattoo artist about just how to proceed. ...Read more
Yes: Like everything else involving body art, it's at your own risk. Your physician might be your best guide here. If you take a factor before other procedures, this would perhaps be a good time. Start with something small. I like well-chosen body art and if this is something you've really wanted for some time, I hope you're able to get it. ...Read more

My son has hemophilia, but hasn't had a major bleed in about 6 years and takes regular shots. Is it safe for him to play tackle football for his hs?
No: I think you need to speak to your son'e hematologist. As you know hemophilia is graded as mild, moderate, and severe. I don't know the severity of your son's hemophilia. Even if he has mild hemophilia, it is still very risky to have him play tackle football. I have seen a 16 or 17 year old boy who developed severe muscle bleed after playing football first time in his life. ...Read more
Depends on severity: Hemophilia can be very mild (though this is rare) and you may not notice hardly any symptoms or just some increased bleeding after a cut, etc. Severe hemophilia usually results in easy bruising, bleeding into joints (hemarthrosis), bleeding for no reason (nosebleeds for instance) and possible life threatening bleeding events. ...Read more
Classical hemophilia, also called hemophilia a, is a bleeding disorder due to deficiency of clotting factor viii and affects boys almost exclusively. About 1 in 5000 boys are born with it. There are other types of hemophilia too. See this site for more info.

No, it remains SAME: Hemophilia a and b, most common types of hemophilia are hereditary conditions. The gene is usually passed on from a mother who is a carrier of the gene to her son. Although women and girls could suffer from hemohpilia, it is very rare. Hemophilia is thus usually a disese only present in males. A spontaneous mutation of a normal gene to hemophilia gene ocasionally occurs. ...Read more
Yes: Hemophilia a (factor 8 deficiency) & b (factor 9 deficiency) are x-linked recessive. Hemophilia c (factor 11 deficiency) is autosomal and usually (but not always) recessive. Von willebrands disease (VWD) type 1 is autosomal dominant. Vwd type 3 is autosomal recessive. Vwd type 2 (2a, 2b, 2m, 2n) is usually autosomal dominant but may be recessive sometimes. ...Read more
Yes, a gene mutation: Hemophilia "a" is a hereditary bleeding disorder where there is a deficiency in clotting factor viii (factor viii is needed for blood clotting). It is inherited on the x-chromosome (sex-linked). Men only have 1 "x", so if their "x" is mutated, they will have the disease. Women have 2 "x's", so they can have 1 mutated "x" and 1 normal "x", and be a carrier of the disease, with mild or no symptoms. ...Read more
Subspecialist care: The two common hemophilias are lack of factor viii (hemophilia a) and factor ix (hemophilia b) respectively. Of variable severity, these people are prone to bleed too easily especially from blunt trauma. Treatment consists of replacement of the missing factor and is a complicated business with specialists that are well-equipped to do this. Cure by gene therapy may soon be here for ix. Good luck. ...Read more
