Getting a MRI after TattooingUnfortunately there is much confusion regarding MR safety aspects of permanent makeup. In the " olden days " when there was lead in tattoo ink it was not safe to have magnetic resonance ( MR ) imaging. Now ink and pigments ( used for permanent makeup ) do not have lead. Data obtained from surveys from 1032 patients was cataloged, 135 of these study subjects ( 13.1% ) underwent MR imaging after having permanent makeup. One subject reported a " slight tingling " and the other a " burning sensation " , both of which were short-lived or transient in nature. In conclusion MR imaging may be safely performed on those with permanent makeup without any adverse reactions. I think this whole urban myth began with a Dear Abby question many years ago that lead to much confusion.
