Lower Back Tattoos Can Lead To Problems During Childbirth

Women who are in the habit of going for tattoos, especially at the lower back and buttocks may be facing problems during childbirth, reported the German medical journal Arzte Zeitung. Drawing large tattoos at the back may prevent doctors from applying local anesthesia during delivery.

Tattoos are frequently positioned on the lower back, precisely where doctors inject the painkiller along the spine. Injecting through tattooed skin carries the risk of transmitting allergens or poisonous pigments into deep tissues, leading to irritation.

The study was based on work by a researcher at the University of California in San Diego. Doctors have been encouraged to use a different, more complicated method of providing anaesthesia to women with such tattoos.
