I would like to hear from people that have had tattoos after being diagnosed with lupus. Any problems with healing, infections, etc. I have had lupus for about 15 years now and would like to get a tattoo and I want to know what I'm up against.

I'd also like to know (roughly) what medications you were taking at the time of your tattoo... how serious your lupus was at the time.

I've got less than a week to get your responses so thanks in advance to everyone that helps out!

Hey I actually had a tattoo done a few months before I found out I had Lupus. I got a tattoo of shamrocks on my left ankle. I did not have any problems with it. A few months ago I had the color touched up a little bit and I didn't have any bad side effects with my lupus. I have SLE for the past three years. At that time I had the touch up I was on Prednisone 10mg, Vioxx 25mg, and Chloroquine. Good Luck to your tattoo. I would maybe suggest you talk to your dr to see if they might want to give you an antibiotic or something. But Good luck
