Hi Kohmanne,
My name is Mick. I'm a 42 year old man living in the north east of England. I have a pws wich covers about half of my body including all of my right arm. I have never had any laser treatment. I approached a tattoo artist ten years ago and we started tattooing my arm. At first he started using skin tones to try and blend it away. It didn't work very well so we decided to go for normal tattoo designs and now every inch of my arm is tattooed. The pale colours don't work too well so we did most of it in black and grey tones. I'm very happy with the result. I found it to be more painful than having my white bits tattooed and there was a lot of bleeding as he worked. Even my doctor thinks my tattoo sleeve looks fantastic. I now wear short sleeves in public and I don't care if people stare. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. Stand tall and walk proud! God made us the way we are. Your body is a temple, so you might as well paint the walls.

Mick
