Default TATTOOING PORT WINE STAIN

I have PWS on my arm

I know that it's possible to tattoo PWS with flesh colored
pigment.

I would really like to hear from people who had their
PWS tattooed .

Please e-mail me "bala@aquanet.co.il" or post.

Default Re:TATTOOING PORT WINE STAIN

I had tattooing many years ago and it did not help at all. The tattoo colors the upper layers of skin. The pws is caused by blood vessels. I don't see how tattooing can cover that.
Also, the pws progresses over the years. Have you considered laser?
