Desperately wanting more tattoos. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello, we recommend that you test the inks used before tattooing. You should also make sure that the psoriasis is not fully active at the time of tattooing. A strengthened immune system and especially a healthy diet before the appointment and during healing is very helpful.

In general, black ink should cause fewer complications than colours. It can also be helpful to work with less ink or to choose a style that is more forgiving. Dotwork, for example, is a good option here.
