So I got a tattoo on my lower back when I was 16 (I had my mom's consent b/e where I live you need to be 18 without consent). When I had my son years later I was told that I couldn't get an epidural because of the tattoo. (I guess the worry is the ink can be spread to the blood from the neddle?)
SO the question is, should tattoo artists be required to inform young girls about this sort of thing? I wasn't informed and I maybe would have placed it higher or maybe some girls would decide not to get it done at all.
