Piercing question
paintbynumbers posted:
I have displastic nevus syndrome with a history of melanoma. The question that I have is..I want to get a Marilyn Monroe (upper lip piercing) and I have a mole with no pigment and was wondering if it would be ok to pierce through it. I know that I cannot tattoo over moles but didn't know about a piercing. The mole is unnoticeable to others, but like most people I notice it and don't like it. I would like to cover it up and also want a piercing. It also happens to be in the perfect spot for this particular piercing.
