If a woman gets a lower back tattoo, will it prevent her from being able to receive an epidural?


My friend and I are getting tattoos on our 18th birthday and the one that she wants to get starts in the lower back region and continues up her spine. However, we have heard from several sources that some doctors will not administer an epidural if a woman has a lower back tattoo. Other sources say this is just a rumor. Has anybody that has a lower back tattoo ever been in this situation? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!
