This is a bit of an odd scenario, but here goes. Ive been thinking about getting a tattoo for the last few years. about a year ago i decided i wanted a phoenix on my back from the shoulders, up to the neck and also down to the lower back, it would be quite large. I said its a big decision and i would give myself 12 months to see if i would end up changing my mind. Im now approaching 12 months and since that time i havent changed my mind about it, and definitly sure i want it. But sometihng i noticed is acne scarring on my back. When i was younger id never get that many pimples on my face, more on my back & shoulders, problem was that id never let it go untouched, i would always pick at them, leaving many many scares. My query is how would a tattoo look when its done over acne scarring? Also, does anyone know of any creams or lotions that can get 'rid of' scarring like that? Thanks for any kinda input!
