I have bacne, and im using tret cream which is doing pretty well for it right now. Ive got alot of scars that are taking their sweet time to go away tho. Anyhoo, ive always wanted a tattoo on my back, but I was wondering, is bad for the acne/scars? Would it make me break out? Get an infection? Or is it generally okay? Hopefully some one has experience with this...

Hmmm....well I do know that tattoo artists do not tattoo over scar tissue because scar tissue isnt as pourous to allow to ink in.

A tattoo will cover up scars. It's up to the tattoo artist to determin whether he/she will tattoo over the scars.

:) good luck and tell me how it goes!

That makes sense. Im guessing that I would have to wait a while till the skin heals a bit more, and that what im gonna do before asking an artist. That is, if it ever gets better :P
