When we were all hanging out at the Beckers Nevus Yahoo Group, there was a few guys who got tattoos. I wish I kept the pic he sent me but I can tell you that it looked very good from the pictures. I thought it would look odd trying to cover over a darker area of skin but you could not tell a difference. Again, this was from a picture, I am not sure what it looked like in person.
I am in my mid 30’s and to me, it’s not a bid deal. However, my nevus is on my lower hip (ok, it’s on my upper ass…) so you can’t really see it even with my shirt off unless I was totally butt naked.
I also considered getting a tattoo at one time but…I am not sure if it’s worth it now. If I did get a tattoo, I would probably take a picture of the nevus and have someone create custom artwork to work with the boarders and outline of the nevus. Also, I am not sure I would try to cover it up with bright/light colors since tattoos do fade over time and that might show thru eventually. I would probably get something black/grey and white. If I did do color, it would have to be dark colors.
As far as content, I would like to get a tat that actually means something to me. I mean, I don’t want some big honkin eagle or dragon on my upper ass cheek just to cover up a birthmark. Maybe I’ll get a tattoo of a Beckers Nevus on my other ass cheek so at least I’ll have symmetry.
