What happens if you tattoo on an area of the body that has very visible capillaries, therefore quite superficial? For example, the legs often have areas with clearly visible capillaries, sometimes varicose veins. I would like to know if you have had any experiences about it and how you would behave in these situations. Thank you in advance for your time 🙂 Alessia <3 Reply Ann Gilberg February 13, 2021 at 1:38 pm Hey 🙂 Varicose veins are definately a problem for tattooing and mostly should be removed by a pysichian first, they bear a high risk of damaging the tattoo. Also it is, in fact, easier to accidentally pierce the vein, which could worsen it’s contidion. Also varicose veins could get dangerous at some point and it might be necessary to pull them. In this case the tattoo would get heavily damaged in this process. Also a doctor might not be able to spot a dangerous varicose vein if it is completely covered with a tattoo. Even though as you see there is a lot of reasons not to do it, still it is possible in some cases but you should ask your client to go to the doctor first to get an ok. If you are talking about spider veins ( idiopathic telangiectases ) I have to admit that I have not really much experience with it myself. I guess because most of my clients are not that old yet and spider veins mostly come with age. The Spider veins itself are said to not be that much of a problem, depending on how heavily visible they are. But one of their causes is bad connective tissue and this is an indicator that this person on this spot of their body might have a much higher risk of getting blowouts. So in both cases you can never be 100% sure if it is a good idea to tattoo over it or not. And if you really want to do it I would highly recommend, in both cases, seeing a doctor first and ask for their opinion. <3 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
