Man Dies After Getting Swimming With New Tattoo [PICS]

A man has passed away after swimming 5 days after he had gotten a fresh tattoo. See what happened… says that the man was admitted to a hospital in Dallas “with severe pain in both legs and feet. He also had fever, chills, and a reddening over his tattoo and other areas of his skin.”

The man had gotten a tattoo and 5 days later he decided to go for a swim in the Gulf Of Mexico. He was in the hospital three days after his swim.


The article reports:

‘Doctors diagnosed the man with septic shock due to an infection with vibrio vulnificus, potentially deadly bacteria found in certain coastal waters that are present in higher concentrations in warmer months.”

Within 2 months after being admitted to the hospital, the man passed away. People with normal functioning immune systems should be able to fight off such infections but this patient had a history of alcohol cirrhosis of the liver.
