Experts in dermatology point out that the tattoo ink can prevent seeing if the moles are normal or not , or if it is indicative that there may be a melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer. The benefits are minimal with respect to the damages that tattooing moles can have. Yes, the tattoo may not look so good but it is important to consider the risks involved in this practice.

The tattooists with a minimum of rigor always recommend their customers it is important not to tattoo over moles. This is where the ability of tattoo artists to "integrate" the mole into the design itself or to capture the tattoo so that it is not necessary to inject ink into the mole area comes into play.
