I would like to get a tattoo, and want to know if having a mechanical heart valve or being on coumadin will affect my ability to do this.
No. I would not recommend that you get a tattoo while on Coumadin because you will bleed much more than what you normally would but to be sure run the question past the Dr who takes care of writing your coumadin scripts and does your INRs. Ask him his opinion on whether or not it is safe for you to get a tat.
