I have a problem with my blood called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia. This condition causes me to have lower blood platelets than your average person who typically has a count between 140,000 and 400,000. My count ping pongs between 40,000 and 100,000 typically. platelets are cells within the blood that aid in clotting. Now I took a chance and got one piercing since I discovered I had this condition, and I barely bled and so far it's healing up great, but a tattoo is another story. I got for my doctor's appointment on Tuesday to go over my numbers for the past three months, but my doctor said it's dangerous for me to be tattooed because I may bleed more than normal. I've already got two tattoos which I had done before I discovered I had this but I wanted to know has anyone gotten tattooed with this condition like me, or do you know someone who has? At what count would I be okay to get tattooed. There's not much information available on the internet and I would really appreciate any personal experiences, I just can't stand the thought of not being able to get tattooed ever again.
