Hello! about acne medicine!

Recommended Posts

Hello! i'm new to the forum, but i've been looking for answers from people who know, so i guess this is the right place.

Anyway, I'm on accutane 20/mg every other day, with no side effects other than dry lips and have been for around 5 months, is there a problem if i get a tattoo on my arm to cover a scar? just black ink.

I'm wondering cause I can't do it after the treatment since i'll be living abroad and doesn't seem to be a possibility to get it done there after the treatment which still has a a few more months left. 

has anyone have had a tattoo while on this medicine? I've read it can slow down healing but I'm not sure if it messes up the tattoo itself....

Any input would be appreciated! thank you!


ps. sorry if i'm posting this in the wrong place, couldn't pick another forum.

Some artists won't do a tattoo while you're on the medicine. It is possible a test spot could be done to see how it works if you absolutely can't wait, but you don't NEED to have a tattoo done right now, do you? You really don't want to wind up with a problem tattoo that drops ink, or a keliod making the scarring even worse.

Where are you going abroad? Most (maybe all, but some are still clandestine) countries have tattoo shops.

    • To be honest I cant see the problem with this one. The work looks clean and the lines are good. In fact I like it. I generally like colour and dislike sad looking black and grey work anyhow,. Ive seen some shocking black tribal ten times worse than this one. A bad tattoo is one which has been done badly, this actually looks like it turned out how the client expected. However if we are talking about personal taste then there's some tattoo snobbery going on here.  This tattoo I would say was done in the 90''s early noughties and high chance it was bad ass at the time (20years ago) The anti tribal brigade came out in force after that period because artists got bloody tired of doing them.  Personally its wrong to criticise a tattoo that's done well. Not everyone wants a 3D skull with a dagger through its forehead.
    • Thank you for the info and pics! I think I already noticed it getting smaller.
    • Hi there, I got the same problem with tattoo bumps, it really takes time to heal. Mine was bigger than yours and I waited it for a month finally healed by itself. Make sure you keep it hydrated as well with enough aftercare ointment. It'll heal just fine 😊   P.s : colors usually takes more time to settle in, depends on one's skin condition.
