this may be a dumb question but if you have a lower back tatttoo (lumbar) will most anestheseologists give you an epidural?

I have a lower back tattoo and was able to get an epidural but it really all depends on if your tattoo is low enough. Check with your doctor. They said mine was just low enough.

Okay this has been posted before. I have a lower back tattoo that I have had for about 10 yrs now. When I had my daughter, who is 4 now, They had no issues. They put the epidural in my tat also. They usually do it by feel, it makes it a little harder for them with a tat but hey they need a chllange every once in a while dont they. So dont worry, A good dr can do the epidural by feel

MJM, Thanks for the encouragement. I hadnt thought about this before but I do have a lower back tattoo. I just got totally scared that I wouldnt be able to get an epidural!!! I think I will ask my doctor just to make sure.
