No Sweat:Tatoos and Exercise

  Tattooed skin generated les sweat and higher sodium concentration than nontattooed skin when stimulated by pilocarpine iontophoresis .
  Translated : heavily tattooed athletes sweat less not allowing for heat dissipation with vigorous physical exertion which may pose health risks such as heat exhaustion and fatigue and increase risk of injury.
