VITILIGO AND TATTOOS - FRIEND OR FOE?

This is another article I’m going to preface with the phrase: I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I am a writer, a writer with a penchant for the tattoo industry and learning everything there is to learn about the art form... every in and out... and I enjoy sharing this information with everyone else.
 
Okay, now that that’s out of the way... we can move on.
 
Recently, I stumbled upon an article regarding vitiligo and tattoos and my curiosity got the better of me. Now, if you’re not familiar with the disease, let’s go through a quick rundown. Vitiligo is a disease in which the pigment-producing cells of the body begin to die or merely stop functioning correctly. This process can occur in any area of the body, including the mouth, hair, and eyes, in addition to the visible places such as hands, face, legs, and torso. While vitiligo is more noticeable on people with darker skin pigmentations, it does affect every race, regardless of skin tone.
