Experts warn against getting tattoos in some places on the body because of possible health hazards.
For instance, the American Academy of Ophthalmology cautions against getting an eyeball tattoo since it may cause blindness.
In a similar vein, dermatologist Dr. Julia Carroll tells Global News that tattoos on the inner lip may be more vulnerable to bacterial infection.
Any tattoo carries some danger of infection, but there are certain extra precautions to take with designs that cover our veins.
"getting a tattoo involves exerting pressure to your skin with a needle, which can rupture the vein, causing it to bleed into the surrounding tissue and leading to an infection."
Let's look at our wrist as an illustration. Compared to veins in other parts of the body, these veins could seem more obvious or somewhat more protruded.
