getting tattooed on accutane

Hi all,

I've been 4 weeks on Accutane now and I have an appointment for a tattoo next week...

Did anyone get tattooed while on accutane? I am having it on my chest and my skin isn't really dry

Any recommandations?

Thanks

Ever had a tattoo before? How big is the one you're thinking of getting? I don't think I would do it... A tattoo is a wound, and the healing may get all fucked up... And I think you can get infections more easily on tane...You may even get an allergic reaction to the coulour...

I don't think it's dangerous, but you wouldn't want the tattoo to look bad because of some accutane effect.... But I may be wrong... Call your derm ;)

Don't do it. Your healing response is reduced on Accutane and you are likely to scar badly. Wait until you have been off Accutane for six months. A tattoo is forever, wait a little longer to ensure it turns out the way you wanted.

I agree. Wait six months.
