    Question Tylenol 3 and Tattoos?

    Hey this isnt really a health and fitness type thing but I dont know where else to post it.

    Basicly last summer I got a fairly large tattoo that covers most of my shoulder and arm. I'll admit that it hurt like hell and I felt like I was going to pass out during the initial part of it. Anyways I was bleeding alot so the coloring of the tattoo wasnt as good as it should be. Some parts arent as dark as others pretty much (the whole tattoo is colored in black so light spots really show now). The artist knew this and told me to come back in 2 months and he'd re color it in. Long story short, I still havent gone back but I do have plans to soon get it re colored in and get another one on the inside of my bicep where it will be even more painful to get. I was talking to a friend of mine who gets alot of ink done and he said before he goes to get a tattoo he has a tylenol 3 and then getting the tattoo doesnt bother him at all.

    What I was wondering is this a safe thing to do? Because the first thing they ask you is if you are on any drugs or on alcohol. I know thats mainly so drunk/high people dont get a tattoo they didnt want but im still not sure. Some else told me that when your on a tylenol 3 your blood is temporarily thinner so its dangerous to get a tattoo because you will bleed alot more than normal and that I might fall asleep while getting the tattoo.

    Basicly what it comes down to is I'd rather not have the pain if I cant get around it , but its not worth it to me if it will cause other problems

    Any feed back from experiences will help because the artist did tell me where I want to get the second one will be extremely painful because it too is large and on a fleshy part of my arm.

    being tatted myself...I got a couple of my four in painful spots (no dirty jokes guys)...

    but the dealie wif tha drugs is yes, so your blood doesn't thin out...at least this is what Lisa my inker tol' me...if your blood does thin, then you will end up in the exact same position as you are right now...having to go back...what I suggest for larger tats...do them in stages...sure it might take a month for a tat that you could have sat in the chair for three hours in...but the pain is lessened...and a more tolerable tat...is a more enjoyed tat...

    There is this numbing cream that you can get, forget what the name is but I got it from Shoppers Drug Mart last time I got my tatty done....and it helped big time. I'm sure if you ask the pharmacist they would know what you are talking about.

    I do agree with this statement...as there are areas that are a lil more painful...BUT...if you are getting a needle repeatedly poked into your body to deposit ink into your skin...

    SUCK IT UP NANCY...

    I posted in my first reply to this thread on why he shouldn't...sheesh...and seriously...if you cannot handle the pain, then don't jump on the tat bandwagon and then bitch that you cry yourself to sleep cause the scabbing is itchy...

    I have one on my left inner forearm, right bicep, one on my right shoulder blade and one on my left shoulder blade...all of various sizes...

    well some people might not be able to tolerate pain a such as you do, I had my right arm sleeved from shoulder to wrist and the wrist sucked as well as inner bicep...the cream helped a lot, just giving advise not here to start an argument.

    ^^^^ hahah whos this tough guy???

    For example the back of your arm where your tricept is, is extremely sensative. To the point that they tell you about it in self defence classes. I have never had a tattoo but the numbing cream sounds helpful!

    Edit: i just checked my drug refference guide and Tylenol #1, 2, 3, 4, should not thin your blood out. there is a chance of Thrombocytopenia ( reduction in platelets , reduction in production of platelets, and reduction in survival of platelets. THis is rare. IT should be safe to use!

    yeah i hear you, but i think getting a tattoo isnt about showing it off for your pals... its about actually getting it,, feeling the pain, thats a huge part. I think if you cant take the pain get a temp tat.....

    the "thining of blood" refers to the inhibition of blood platelets, ibprophen does inhibit platelet production and its effectiveness. So theres a chance the tattoo wont heal properly.

    I say suck it up, the pain is part of the experiance.

    If you think getting a tattoo is about feeling pain maybe you have some bigger emotional issues you need to take care of. Correct me if im wrong but I thought a tattoo was an attempt to individualize yourself or mark something of importance to yourself. The pain is just part of the process.


    And if you actually read my thread you would see that I said either way Im going to get another tattoo and that I'm just looking into if there are ways I can get it without it hurting as much this time.

    To all the guys with the helpful tips, thanks. I think I'm going to look into this cream, I dont want to worry about the tattoo not healing properly if i use a t3.

    LOL, the pain is half the fun. Tylenol shouldn't affect anything, you just don't want to be taking anything that might make you bleed more (ie. aspirin).

    I have a full sleeve from knee to ankle -- the only part I found really painful was my shinbone and behind my knee. Other than that I like the feeling, its like having an itch scratched.
