Can You Get Tattoo’s While On Humira?

The tattoo I got while on Humira. It took 3 sessions to complete that were 1.5-3 hrs long.

Please note: I am not a doctor or a medical professional. You should talk to your doctor before getting a tattoo if you are on immunosuppressants.

I have gotten one tattoo while on Humira. I plan on eventually getting more. I haven’t yet because tattoos cost money and I have bills to pay, unfortunately! The only thing I have noticed about the healing process while being on Humira is that my tattoo actually healed a little slower than normal. I got three tattoos before I was ever diagnosed with IBD so I have a pretty good idea of how long my body takes to heal after getting one.

I did not actually talk to my doctor about getting a tattoo while on immunosuppressants. I did some research online and I figured that if I went to a good, clean, reputable tattoo shop that I would be fine. I followed my artists care instructions and I made sure to keep my tattoo covered up with long sleeves while I was at work. I had no problems with it healing thankfully.
