Get A Tattoo Psoriasis
Yes: However, with bleeding tendency, you must be cautious. Further, since you already have a blood disorder, the infectious risks from getting a tattoo will mean you have to be even more cautious and concerned. New needles, new inks, and sterile areas are a must. ...Read more
Tattoos on your breasts, or elsewhere, will not have any effect on your pregnancy or on breastfeeding your new baby. It may not be a good idea to get a new tattoo during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, because of the small risk of infection from the small breaks in the skin that ...Read more
I don't see why not: Should be fine; unless your birthmark was a hemangioma (a large collection of vessels in the skin) the birthmark is, literally, skin deep. You could even use your birthmark in the tattoo if u want! Make sure your artist is using clean technique, and that he/she is licensed. There is definitely a risk of getting an infection, even Hepatitis B/C, and we'd like to minimize that. Good luck! ...Read more
It's possible, but: Tattoo ink is deposited in the dermis, second-down layer of the skin. There it is internalized by macrophages, clean up cells of the skin. Because macrophages don't really know what to do with tattoo pigment, they just sit in the dermis holding on to it. That's sort of what keeps the ink in place.

If i get psoriasis on a tattoo will steroid creams and the psoriasis itself mess up the tattoo permanently?
Probably not: The reports are flares or local EM-like reactions to henna and to some of the bright colors. Ordinary black tattoo ink is less likely to be a problem. Wait on getting inked, though, especially at your age. I'm a buff and have two, but you need to wait several years and if after that time it is STILL exactly what you want, go for it. Erythema mul ...Read more
I have overthick nail skin but don't have nail fungus. This causes ingrown nails. Should I see a podiatrist or a dermatologist?
No: Please read my recommendation to ur other question about tatto and scars. But tattooing a area with scar should not be more painful, unless there is a problem like active inflammatipn or infection. Then you should avoid the area completely. Even keloids are active inflammation areas and they should be avoided. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
