"It's not usually recommended to have a body piercing or tattoo while you're taking rivaroxaban because of the increased risk of bleeding and infection.

If you still want to go ahead, talk to your doctor about your specific risks in case you need antibiotics.

And let the tattooist or piercer know beforehand that you're taking a blood-thinning medicine"

erm I am on rivaroxaban
and no I wouldnt get a tattoo

but ask the tattooist. I dug out the recommendation for dentists ( not great tattooists I agree) when he took out a tooth, He went pale BUT it basically says - just close your eyes and do it ( pull on the pliers )
specifically pay attention to blood clotting and use a haemostat more commonly
