    i dont think so.. i dont know.. but you should give blood before you get a tattoo.. cos you gotta wait six months between dont you?

    You can't give blood. Tattoos should be fine - I've had four hours worth of tattoo on my leg so far starting in November and had the latest section done yesterday. I've been SSing since Sept - and no adverse effect - but as someone else said - you have to leave six months between tattooing and giving blood anyway!

    I'm working on a sleeve and I have been tattooed during being on lipotrim, but I am only end of my second week. I told my tattooist about my diet and he didn't make out like it was any problem though! giving blood will probably be a problem though..

    I made sure I had just had a shake before my appointment and I was fine.......if you like the flapjacks then maybe take one with you and eat it just before you go in.

    Hiya hun,
    well just spoke to my friend and he said it should be fine, have a shake before hand for comfort sake and he also gave me the number of a really really good tattoo artist in Zulu(who tattoo Greenday etc) and he was telling me it should be no problem but if you're getting one that will take some time, let the artist know before hand that you may want to take breaks during. He said the bleeding wouldn't be anything to do with the diet, he also said have a shake before hand so you feel better but the bottom line was basicly that it shouldn't be a problem and said you should have tea with sugar but i explained that sugar wasn't allowed so replace it with a sweetener just so you feel in top form.

    Hope that's of some help to you!

    Good luck Galgirl. The 4lbs you put back on will not be fat, it will be your glycogen store returning back to normal. I bet after the first week you've lost the 4lb and some. You know the score, get through the first few days then you'll be fine.

    Good luck again.
