I can't see how tattoos would be harmful (unless you have DH or unless you are getting one near your mouth and the dye/coloring contains gluten).

It is a common misconception, even among docs, that the gluten has to come into contact with the digestive tract. Not so, especially if you are extremely sensitive or have dh. Some people are more sensitive than others. All we have to do is be in the room with the wheat dust and have it come into contact with mucous membranes to get a reaction. We don't have to swallow it. With the DH, just coming into skin contact will trigger a reaction. My husband works for Domino's and my oldest son works for Papa John's. If they come in and do not shower before sitting on the couch, you can count on us having a problem within the next day or so.

Haha richard, that's funny. I do NOT have DH and skin contact with gluten gives me problems.

I would personally check what is in what they inject into you when giving you a tattoo. I would not think it woud contain gluten but I know I would not do one if it did contain gluten.

I read a story in the news recently that said some inks in tattoos have mercury in them or other stuff you don't want in your body. I have a tattoo but if I'd known that before I got it, I probably wouldn't have gotten one. If I was to get another I would definitely want to know something about the tattoo artist and what kinds of inks they use.

I'm not sure about the mercury or lead issue. As regulated as the tattoo industry is (in most states anyway) I kinda doubt it. Mercury and lead are on everyone's no-no list.

Definitely talk to other customers before selecting a tattoo artist, and definitely talk to the artist about their inks, and more importantly their sterlization and ink reuse procedures.

I have one tattoo now, and plan on at least two more in the near future. But I know my artist, and have no doubts about their abilities, procedures, or materials.

Oh my gosh Kaiti, after reading that I wouldn't get one. I always worried about hep c from getting one. I know people say it won't happen but I know a lot of people that have tattoo's and now have hep. c. Too scary for me. I guess it goes back to each his/her own.

That's what I said to each her own. I don't know if there are any facts to back up what I said it is just what I have observed. I just am afraid to get one.

I also think that many people don't check to be sure what kind of place they are getting one, I think people should be more careful. If someone wants one they should check it out, that's all I am saying.

This is kind of an old thread, but just wanted to see if anyone else has more recent information about a celiac rxn from tattooing? I have 3 tattoos, never had any problems, but all before being dxd. I will be getting one worked on in a couple of weeks. Also, I am not terribly worried about what is in tattoo ink myself. Our water, fish, air, etc. all have compounds that we are exposed to daily that are equally, if not worse, for you. But all risk is relative......

I got a tattoo 4 months ago and have not had any problems with it. I would like to get more but a poor college student can't exactly afford them :D
