how can i thicken my blood?

I take ibuprofen regularly for headaches.

Im tryin to finish a back tattoo and am bleeding too much to have it done.

If the ibuprofen is the issue, how long do I have to be off it?

Or is there something I can take to counteract the blood thinning qualities of the ibuprofen?

No....if you are having bleeding issues, it would be best to consult your medical provider and have a few blood tests first. There is really no way to "thicken" your blood.
