Just wanted to ask if anyone with auto immune conditions or more specifically lupus has any reactions or problems with having tattoos please? I am looking to book my first one and just wanted a bit of advice or reassurance- thank you :))

      I have hashimotos. Only problem I get is every now and again they raise up like hives but they go back down and antihistamines work 😊💚

      I've been told that CFS (what I have) is an autoimmune condition (but I'm not confident about that) and I have 7 tattoos. I think the biggest thing you should prepare for is potentially crashing the next day just from exhaustion.

        @lemonjuice that makes sense, thank you- i would have high fatigue anyway due to going out (getting dressed, socialising, travelling etc) 👍

      I have four tattoos, three relatively big ones and one medium one. I've always been fine with it. In fact rge process is usually pretty relaxing for me. Research your artist (good advice even without AI disease. Research placement of the tattoo and size as well as what art you want. And always always always alert your artist to your conditions. Also be aware tattoo flu is a thing, I had it with my biggest one but I felt better within a couple of days. Good luck with everything! 💕❤️

      I have gotten many tattoos and havent had issues. Ive actually found that my pain tolerance is higher for tattoos compared to someone without autoimmune diseases.
