Why would a tattoo interfere with a skin graft?

I did a search and could not find an answer. That was what the book author had stated in his book.

guessing...... not every area is covered in the "best for grafting" type skin, tattoos reduce the graft ability of the skin they are on, a lot of leg, ass, full sleeve style tattoos limits options?

Yeah, my question is really why would tattoos reduce the graft ability of the skin they are on? It’s just injected ink; it’s not toxic.

Like Vinny, I also did a quick interwebz search but couldn’t find any obvious assertions that tattooed skin is harder to graft.

Well it would mess up the picture. It would turn out like this:

Yesterday a read a book on a Navy SEAL who was severely injured in Iraq.
What book is this.
"You haven't, I suppose, ever mixed with politicians at close quarters. They're awful. I think some of these must have been the dregs anyhow, but I've discovered, what previously I didn't believe possible, that politicians behave in private life and say exactly the same things as they do in public. Their stupidity is inhuman.
