I asked my nephrologist if I could get tattoos before I got them and he said yes so I did. But come to find out I'm allergic to the ink and keep getting rashes on them so I called to make an appointment with my family doctor but she was on vacation so I made an appointment with the nurse practitioner and she is very anti-tattoo and scolded me for probably an hour and told me that they will not let me get a transplant because I have tattoos (I'm waiting for a phone call from the transplant center now). I told her that I got permission from my kidney doctor first and she said that she's been in this business for over 30 years. So, who is right? Will they really turn me away because I have tattoos?
