Not a good idea: If your body has already told you tat you're in a higher risk group for forming keloids, i would not recommend doing anything that could cause one such as piercings.

Keloid: Not recommended. You are prone to keloids. They can form with trauma in any par tof the body. This means that any piercing would put you at risk.
