I have for a long time wanted to get a back and shoulder piece done but have some acne scars and a couple pimples from wear my gi. I was wondering whether or not this had any impact on the tattoo? The opinions of any resident artists here is greatly appreciated.

If it's scarred bad from the acne, the tattoo will have a bit of texture to it. If here are whiteheaads or the skin is broken at all,I don't reccomend tattooing over it. The needles will just tear that skin up bad and casue more scar tissue.

I would try some otc medication and wash and moisturize as much as possible. Got talk to a reputable tattoo artist and ask his opinion..take some pics to document the progress. good luck
