I'm just officially introducing myself. I'm a longtime lurker finally stepping out. I have 9 tattoos, Technically 11 but three of them were combined to make a chest piece + half sleeve. Right now i'm wanting to extend my half sleeve on my leg to a full sleeve but I still have a faint sun burn above my knees from 6 months ago from where my shorts didn't cover and it's still a bit red/tanned. I've shown my dermatologist and they said it would just take time, that I did some damage. I'm wondering if it's best to wait until my skin returns back to it's pale self or if it's okay just being a tad darker and having had so many months pass. It sucks because that's where I wanted to get more work done at.
