That sounds like an incredibly bad idea to me. Why would you want the pain, not to even mention the possibility of infection.  You're messing with some potentially deadly stuff here.

Not what I'd do....

I know I would not want to have needles poking around above the scar where I know there are wires running to my heart and have them inject ink into it.   Also, when they need to replace the device ie for battery life, they will cut right through your tatoo.  Wonder what it will look like after that?   Just my 2 cents.

Documents ref my device (Medtronics) say to avoid tattoos in the area of the device.

Having said that, you need to remember that when it or leads need to be replaced, they may destroy that tattoo while doing so.  I am a long time ICD patient and they have had to move the device slightly to accommodate new vien entry points, so you can't expect that you will never have more than one insertion scar and one that will destroy your artwork. 

You know you're wired when...

Muggers want your ICD, not your wallet.

I finished 29th in London in 2 hours 20 minutes 30 seconds which is my fastest with or without a device so clearly it didn’t slow me down ! I had no problems apart from some slight chaffing on my scar - more Vaseline next time.
