Tattoos and MRIsWatch
Please don’t roast me. I was young and dumb.
Just wanna know if I’m gonna die lol, any med school students/ radiographers know if I’m ok to have an MRI with a tattoo?
I have a teeny tiny stick and poke tattoo that my mum doesn’t know about on my foot and I’m having a brain MRI in a couple of days. Obvs because it’s an SNP I used biro ink and that contains iron oxide amongst many other ferrous metal compounds which slightly terrifies me. I have been told I can keep my titanium scaffold bar in my ear tho so I’m assuming I’m not gonna die that hard looooollll.
Need to know if any one has been in the same situation (I mean it’s very niche but you never know lol) feel free to hate me now xx cheers in advance.
(Even then, if it's secure it wouldn't be a problem. Hip replacements for example, is OK)
(Make sure you do check with the MRI technicians / radiographers though)
