Has anyone who has EDS had a tattoo or have given themselves one? I'm getting my first professionally done one next year but I've given myself stick n pokes before but my skin just stretches with each needle poke and stuff, so I'm wondering about other people's experiences with tattoos? And also if there's any complications with healing speed or pain too?

      I have a few tattoos and they went great just took a bit longer to heal!

        @Lander02 Just make sure to follow the after care directions and moisturize more often and longer than they tell you!

      My mast cells are too picky for me to get a tattoo so my EDS isn’t a concern. My friend’s partner who also has EDS has some tattoos and just accepts the weird healing times and stuff.

      there may be a slower healing time, i’ve done some stick and pokes but they did take a while to heal. obviously the fact it was professionally done so that had an impact on healing time.
