Tattoo while taking tkis?

Hi every one!
I decided to do to a tattoo but I do not know if there are possible interactions between tkis(i take Sprycel) and the ink(as I know the ink is made of plants)Had anyone of you done a tattoo during his therapy with tki?
I have three tattoos but before my diagnosis....

With the possible temporary exception of someone newly diagnosed with very low platelets, there is no problem at all.


Hi David!
I am 4.5 years undetected and my platelets are in normal range!
Thank a lot for your response!

I did ask this question at one point many years ago and my consultant told me there was no problem.  I was never brave enough to carry that through.  However after surgery for beast cancer i had medical grade tattoos done that have not caused any problem.

All the best
