Thank you all for your answers!! I will definitely ask my doctor regarding the risks and if it is at all possible.
Right now, I am experiencing seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp (dang you dry winter weather), which isn't looking too good for me, since I would like the tattoo behind my right ear. I guess I sort of knew in the beginning it might not be possible since my lupus mainly attacks my skin compared to the joints and organs. Doesn't hurt to ask and hear different opinions though.
Also, thank you tgal for the helpful link!
