If you have keloids but you got piercings and none formed can you get a tattoo?

Keloids often form due to the blunt force used by ear piercing guns. Tattoo guns would be unlikely to cause keloids because they just use a needle to distribute the ink in the skin. So, to answer your question, I've never heard of a tattoo gun causing keloids. If you're still unsure, ask your local tattoo parlor and they can give you any information you want to know about tattoos.

There is nothing that you the client can or need to do to prevent this from happening.

This will not work with a tattoo, as I said, because it is irrevocably scarred.

Can you get rid of keloids?

It is possible to reduce the size and improve the appearance of keloids, but treatment is not always successful for all people. Injections of cortisone (a type of steroid) can flatten keloids over time. This form of treatment is very common and safe, but injections must be given monthly until the keloid is flattened. Even if the keloid is flattened, however, the keloid still won't look or feel exactly like the rest of your skin. Revision surgery can be used to remove keloids, but new or bigger keloids may form as a result of surgery. In order to prevent regrowth, surgeons often give injections of cortisone after surgery. Laser treatment is used to flatten keloids and make their color more similar to the surrounding skin. As with cortisone injections, you may need more than one treatment. Pressure bandages or silicone is sometimes worn over keloids for hours, weeks, or months to reduce size, but reduction may take a long time. The size of keloids can also be reduced through freezing (cryotherapy), interferon injections, and radiation. If you know you are prone to developing keloids, you should avoid medically-unnecessary skin surgeries and piercings in order to prevent the development of more keloids.
