I have had ITP for almost 5 years now and i am an extreme fan of tattoos and piercings. As the other post said you should just watch your levels. Ive been tattooed in the 30,000s and yes i did bleed a lot but tattoo looks great and im perfectly fine. only thing is you may need a touch up a few months later due to losing more ink because of bleeding. You should know your body well enough to know how it clots. I usually just warn the person before hand that there will be more blood then the average person but dont usually admit to have a bleeding disorder because some artists wont work on you if they know.
