This question is more common than you think it is. Tattoos have been around for centuries as a means of self-identification. Body art is often used to cover up deformities, enhance features and present a side of oneself to the world.
So, is it safe to get a tattoo over a vitiligo disease? What if you are under medication for vitiligo treatment? Is the tattoo ink safe? Or will the process of tattooing irritate your skin further and worsen the vitiligo disease?
The answer to these questions depends on a variety of factors like the stability of your vitiligo symptoms, your purpose and place of getting a tattoo. First, let’s understand what vitiligo disease is and then explore the options open to you.
What is Vitiligo?
Our body has cells called melanocytes which produce the pigment that gives our skin colour. Sometimes, our immune system mistakenly attacks our own cells. If the melanocytes on a certain part of your body get attacked, they stop producing pigment and a white patch appears, which is called as vitiligo.
Vitiligo patches may occur anywhere on the body, but they mostly affect the face, arms, legs and rectal areas.
