    I might be having surgery a few days prior to a tattoo appointment i had set up. It's a pretty minor surgery, but i'm gonna get knocked out and have to heal up for 2 weeks...i'm getting mild pain killers, so i'm concerned either the surgery's going to mess with me or the pain killers will make me puke...would it be a bad idea to get surgery then within 24-36 hours get ink'd?

    You should be fine, hell used the pain killers for your tattoo session.

    The pain killers will make you bleed like mad.

    Never personally use them when I get tattooed but working at a tattoo shop I've seen a ton of people use them, never had any problems.. Bleeding is the same like if they just had a beer or two.

    i've never had an issue using pain killers and getting a tattoo. Pain killers don't think the blood from my knowledge.

    Theoretically any of the NSAIDS like aspirin, advil, aleve would make you bleed more, while other non-NSAID "mild painkillers" like tylenol would not. It really depends on what they end up prescribing you. I would think any of the opiates like codeine would not be a problem either, mainly just aspirin and it's ilk.

    I believe most painkillers have acetaminophen in them. Thats why they tell you to take tylenol instead of advil since advil does thin out your blood...if I'm not mistaken.
