Can I tattoo a person taking antibiotics?

Antibiotics do not pose a risk by themselves. However, check whether the antibiotic is taken for prophylaxis purposes (i.e. after surgery) or to treat conditions which may have weakened the body. In the latter case, waiting for full recovery is advisable to avoid further stress.
Furthermore, some antibiotics result in photosensitivity (quinolones, tetracyclines and sulphonamides), therefore exposure to sun and UV lamps should be avoided during treatment and for 1 week after.
