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.

    • One thing not to worry about is "being unique"....unless you or your artist just rips off another persons work, your tattoo will be unique. The classics are the classics for a reason. Have you considered a Battle Royale? A bit of a different take on the meanings but could be cool (do an internet search). Or if you are religious, maybe a Rock of Ages. I am throwing some classic ideas out just for fun.  What style are you considering?
    • Well i had that in mind actually, the problem is i can't find any good symbols that mirrors the words. 🤨

      Wisdon is easy = Owl.. 
      Truth, might be scale or something, but i think a scale is more of Justice.. 
      Honor, that' hard.. Maybe an animal, a Lion? 
      Compassion, hmmm a Rose? 
      Loyalty is hard to put into an image too.. :/ 
      Courage. that could actually be more like a symbol of mind because courage comes from sub-counciousness  :D 

      Oh. and the texts are not supposed to be in one big pile like in the picture i added. They will be split up, Honor, truth and loyalty will come near each other, 
      Compassion and wisdom are a pair, and Respect and courage a pair. 

      Or if im boring i will just list them on my back (joking) , because those texts or symbols to them are what i want. 
      They mean so much to me. There is always room ro fill in with something later. 
    • Hey thanks for de advice so far. 🙂

      I got an local artist here (im in Finland) we discussed this matter when i booked for the tattoo, and we will make plans before starting so the issue of "too much text" is known, she had some idea and was going to make a sketch for me. 
      I would've been worried if that topic wouldn't have came up here 😄
      I trust her professionalism (is that a word? 😄) 

      Someone said the image should resonate to me, and i totally agree. 🙂
      Fact is, asking someone "what tattoo should i get" should be answered -> None if you don't know what you want..

      I actually had an Eagle, Lion and a Wolf in mind, Just has to do the research of which one truly pictures my personality most.  Then again everybody has those, and i really would want something unique 🙂 

      Well see about the location, maybe it will be a full back tattoo, And hey, bring on all Roses and Rice 
      Thats why im asking questions here , none offence taken 🙂
