Hi there

I'm a GA sufferer but at this point accepted my fate. My question goes out to anyone in the community who has gotten piercings or tattoos whilst suffering with the condition. I'm a very artsy and individual person and I'd like to get some body art but I'm so hesistant and worried that these things will trigger my condition- I wouldn't be able to bear that as GA gives me enough anxiety as it is. Does anyone have any experience with this? I would really appreciate any response! Even just opinions on it 

Thanks smile

    Hi, I have a tattoo across my stomach and down my hip, butt, outer thigh area. And it didn't make my GA worse.

    I have gotten a few spots in the tattoo. Which worried me, but the tattoo doesn't move as the lesions grow.
