I would guess if your count is low you will bleed a lot during the process and after. Not sure that it is a good idea to get 100's of sticks without platelets to plug the holes.

There was a time when I would have said no, but after learning about possible metals in the ink, I wouldn't be surprised if it affected people in some way.

I didn't have any trouble with getting a tattoo, but everyone can be different. A nurse suggested a medic alert tattoo. I believe my platelets were about 20k at the time. I tried to download a picture but it didn't work
