can i get pierced/tatooed while on accutane?

Recommended Posts

I know that you are not supposed to have surgery for 6 months after you finish accutane but would it be okay to get a piercing or tattoo?

The risk of long term scarring is too high. Even small scratches left scars when I was on accutane, so I wouldn't do it.

Acutane increases the chances of complications inparticular increased scaring,

like everyone else said, you can do it but the chances dont make it worth it.

someone on here did go ahead with it and had no problems however it wasn't something she recomended.

I strongly suggest you wait, its for the best.

Good luck!

Tatooing - absolutely not. It will scar terribly.

Piercing is a little more hit or miss since the injury is more localized. Healing is slowed, the chances of scarring is greatly increased. Only consider it if your planned piercing is in an easy to heal spot, wait for anything known to be difficult to heal. That means no surface-to-surface piercings, no cartilage piercings, navel piercings are very iffy on most people, ect.
