Realistically you should consult your doctor about it. During your first tattoo, did you bleed a lot? The possible complications are that getting a tattoo raises your blood pressure, if you already have high bp, you could faint easier, have issues with controlling bleeding, etc. Outside of that, the other issue is if they put you on blood thinners, that can create problems with bleeding while getting your tattoo.

The best thing to do is to go to your doctor and consult with him and see can he give you a written note to give to the tattoo artist. It really depends on the person and the severity of the blood thinner. Getting a tattoo if you take blood thinners will make the procedure no more painful than if you weren't on thinners.

If the equipment used to create your tattoo is contaminated with infected blood, you can contract various bloodborne diseases — including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

Blood Thinners: If you are taking any kind of medication to thin your blood, you'll want to inform your artist beforehand, and probably also consult your doctor. Depending on the reason you're taking the medication, it might not be wise to get tattooed, or it might just require shorter sessions.

Cholesterol and blood pressure medications while not blood thinners, work to make the blood platelets not stick together. In permanent cosmetics this often means there may be more chance of a blood droplet coming to the surface. The down side is this molecule is bigger than the tattoo pigment molecule and can wash some of them away.

You can crush apixaban tablets and mix them with water, apple juice or apple purée. Swallow this mixture straight away. Dosage. Your dose of apixaban depends on why you're taking it: for people with a heart problem called atrial fibrillation – the usual dose is one 5mg tablet, taken twice a day. But your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of one 2.5mg tablet twice a day if you're over 80 years old, weigh less than 60kg (9st 6lb), or have kidney disease and are at a higher risk of bleeding.
