    I dont think they do tattoos over scars or irritated skin...at least a well recommended tattoist shouldn't. my friend has an area of scarred skin from when he was burnt, and they wouldn't tattoo over it.

    plus, eczema can flare up again and having a tattoo in the same place wouldn't be a good idea i'd have thought

    I really wouldn't. In my experience eczma can flare up and if you itch it you damage the skin- which could damage the tattoo.

    They do do tattos over scars but irratated skin NO. But tattoos over scares have to be done by particular specialists. They can even tatto strech marks to your skin pigment so they look alot less visable.
