Can You Get A Tattoo When You've Got Psoriasis

Can You Get A Tattoo When You've Got Psoriasis

Hello I got plague psoriasis 5 years ago when I got a tattoo it just covered completely in psoriasis and since then I've been scared to get another one. But ive been left with brown like scars all over my arms from where psoriasis have been and would love to get a full sleeve to cover them up. Was just wondering if anyone has got a tattoo while battling psoriasis? Tia 🙂

Ive got 4 tattoo's

Just know that whenever you go tattoo your skin gets irritated from the scratches it makes in the skin, its possible your tattoo will get covered up with psoriasis again and it can damage the tattoo.

I have full sleeve tattoos both arms, a few on my legs and feet and we’re working on my back tattoo. I’ve had PSA and active Psoriasis for 5 years. I’ve never had a problem with any of my tattoos. I have discovered that I am less able to deal with the pain (I usually have a high threshold for pain). My skin after 1-2 hours stops wanting to take the ink. So my tattoo guy and I work together to get them done in short appointments.

After my 1st plaque psoriasis outbreak i was also left with huge brown and "scars" everywhere & i hated them. I have decidede that mine are not really scars though because they will fade & completely disappear if i use the steroid ointments prescribed by my dr & but a cream with salicylic acid in it i got from the Dollar Tree for $1 worked better on them & all my many different kinds of psoriasis than the prescriptions did. If anyone knows where i can find any kind of cream or ointment with salicylic acid in it please let me know because i haven't been able to find any stove running out.
