I am heavily tattooed 25 year old man and when having them done I never really bleed but today I had one and it was bleeding heavily ( all done by the same tattooest) but I did notice the other day I was bleeding a lot when I cut my self shaving and my skin seems to be healing slower should I get this checked out or dose blood thickness change regularly?
Yes, since there has been a significant change in the skin changes during tattoo process, and currently you seem to bleed during the process, it is essential for you to get examined by a doctor, and also to undergo blood tests (complete hemogram, bleeding time and coagulation studies).
This will help in proper diagnosis and resolution of your symptoms and condition.
