Artists avoid them now, and will tattoo around them- it is common enough to see moles within large pieces.

Years ago was different for some - I worry like hell over one on my arm, that I distinctly recall the artist positively grinding ink into!

You should not allow it's placement to affect the overall design of your piece at all.

You shouldn't even SHAVE a mole, let alone Tattoo it.
The slightest thing, if you're unlucky, can cause a mole to metastasize, and in some cases change it from benign to malignant.


I could have just written No as my answer, but it's under 10 characters, so you get some free advice

You could always get it removed first.

Spooky, was just going to say that, might be worth getting it checked out at the docs, then removed and least then it will be flat on the skin and less noticable within your design - Good luck!
