QOW: Safe To Get Tattooed After Staph Infection?

July 23rd, 2009
Question: Two and a half years ago I experienced getting a staph infection through scratching my skin and other medical complications came about. Now since I’m 100% cured is it safe to get a tattoo applied to my skin after what I had been through?”

Answer: Yeah, you should be fine. Actually, you have an advantage because now you know you’re a carrier of the Staph bacteria so you will need to pay extra attention to how you care for your tattoo. Thirty percent of the earth’s population carries Staph, many of them without knowing it until something happens like it did with you. Getting a tattoo won’t be any different for you than it is for anyone else – you just have to make sure that it’s kept super clean so the broken skin doesn’t come in contact with the bacteria.
