I'm having my 4th infusion on Nov 9. I haven't developed any tattoos, I smoke a pack a day, and on restricted alcohol due to flagyl script that ends next week...I will be indulging in a bottle of wine next weekend.

The only real thing I would see is tattoos. You are more prone to serious infections so make sure you go to a place that is super clean and watch afterward for signs of infection. Smoking/drinking arnt good for IBD in general but entyvio won't make it any worse. Meaning if you smoke/drink now and it doesn't arggrave symptoms entyvio is not contraindicated.
