View Full Version : Tattoos and Accutane

Does anybody know if there would be a problem getting a tattoo while on Accutane? As far as I know it's not a blood thinner or anti-coagalunt(sp?). I can't imagine it would be a problem but I'd thought I'd ask anyways.

It appears that there may be some problems associated with taking accutane and getting tats or piercings...

There even appears to be an issue with Donating blood (www.bloodctrwise.org/donate.html).
From what I've read, it seems that it is best to wait about 1 month after stopping your meds before getting a tattoo, piercing or donating blood.
