Hello friends
I am 8 months after double transplant..Liver and Kidney. I too would like to get a tattoo. my doctors do not have an answer for me. They just laugh and say On the safe side don"t do it. That is not what I want to hear ya know? So I figure I will wait a year out ,take my antibiotic ( like when I go to the Dent.) and go get one. My anti rejection traugh is where the docs want it and I have not been sick not even a cold. Which is a good thing. I wish I had the answer. We will just hang in there and sometime one of our docs. will have the answer.

Hi. I had a liver transplant 3/21/13. This year I got 2 tattoos in honor of my donor & everything I went through last year.
I had no complications, Possibly a little longer healing time, but that's all. (I had 2 tattoos prior to my transplant)
