Moles & Large Freckles

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about the possibility of having a few moles/freckles on my back removed in preparation for a backpiece. Thinking now is the time to do it because the scar would have almost 2 years to heal before the first session.

Question for everyone: Has anyone had moles/freckles/beauty spots removed before getting a tattoo in that area?

Question for artists: Would you rather tattoo around a mole/freckle or tattoo over the scar after it is removed?

I had a larger dysplastic nevi (irregular shaped, flat mole) removed (basically carved out) years ago and - in fall I will be getting a tattoo where the scar is. The mole area has "repigmented", the scar is a depression and since I have to watch it for melanoma, the tattoo has to go around the scar anyway. On small mole/ freckle removal, you would have to look closely to see any scaring after two years.

    • Nothing on hand, but it seems like a cool idea. 
    • Any cool pirannha tattoos out there? Please don't tell me "instagram" "google" "pinterest" or anything like that. I'm considered getting an outline of a piranha skull in lime green and dark purple (artist would be free to play with the idea) to symbolism me getting over my cancer (green and purple are the colors). Would love to see some inspirational pictures :)
    • I am experiencing the very same thing currently. Been searching all over to find out what and why. I found this and it is exactly what I’m experiencing. The only difference is I have quite a few tattoos and it is only happening with one and only on the first word. Weird it wouldn’t be the whole tattoo. I will be scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist for sure. This is very worrisome. My tattoo is about 6 months old and no issues up until 2 days ago. Crazy. I hate it.
