Tattoos When You Have Psoriasis: What You Need to Know
Medically reviewed by Allison Truong, M.D.
Body art, otherwise known as tattooing, dates back thousands of years. And tattoos have evolved over time. Once just for sailors and bikers, tattoos are now so mainstream that even grandmas are getting inked.
Plus, tattooing has expanded beyond typical tatts to include permanent makeup (also known as cosmetic tattooing), which uses similar techniques and includes popular procedures like eyebrow microblading and lip tattooing to add pigment to a pout. Tattooing can also mean more than just body art. It can mean drawing nipples on people who’ve undergone mastectomies, for example.
