    Where on your body are you wanting to get it? I'd imagine they're more painful in most areas for people with eds.

    I have 5! Never had any issues besides the ink is lightly raised, probably because of the fragile skin thing.

    I have four tattoos and haven't had any issues personally! My most recent is about a year old now and it's a little raised but my older ones seem to be fine.

    I have over a dozen with no problems. I just avoid areas that have more excess skin and are more toned.

      Failed to mention that I didn’t have a good experience with my first tattoo because the guy didn’t know what he was doing and went too deep so my tattoo is raised but all others are fine. Just be selective of who you go to.

    I got a tattoo, and it was a pretty big one it took three hours and covers my whole thigh, and there’s barely a scar. It really depends on how your skin reacts to things tho. If you do get one I suggest baby oil, I used a creamy one and applied it up to 6 times a day.
