Moles & Large Freckles

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.
