I must say that I have never been approached with that question.
Off the cuff, i must say no. (except maybe a "beer joint"). I can see no therapeutic value in a tattoo.

Hi. There's no scientific basis to suspect so.
If they're using that notion to promote/sell tattoos, call them out on it! That's very false advertising. And I can't imagine anyone promoting that silly notion other than people profiting from selling tattoos!
