Hello. I was reading up about the migration & rejection process. It happened to me when I got my belly button pierced. I now want a tattoo, but I am scared that my body will "reject" that too. Is that possible?
Good question! But that's not likely to happen. Piercings tend to reject on a regular basis and the same people that have piercings reject won't have any trouble at all with a tattoo. It's the foreign object of the jewelry that seems to cause the body to decide it doesn't like and want to push it out, but the body doesn't seem to consider ink a foreign object. The only times I've ever heard of anyone "rejecting" a tattoo was because they were taking a certain kind of medication that didn't react well with getting a tattoo - if you have any concerns about vitamins or medications you're taking, discuss those with your artist. Otherwise, you should be just fine.
