Getting a Tattoo after Shingles?
I'm in my second week of Shingles, and my 18th birthday is on the 25th of August. My mom agreed to help pay for a tattoo that I've wanted for a long time on my upper back. Just to clarify, I do realize that getting a tattoo when I still have the Shingles is a stupid idea. I wasn't planning on it, and a lot of tattoo artists won't even do anything if you have any sign of a rash. I was planning on getting it a couple of weeks after my blisters are all healed up. My shingles are on my left hip and my lower back. I was wondering how long would be safe to wait after Shingles to get the tattoo, and when I would know that Shingles is safely out of my system. Has anyone else tried to get a tattoo after Shingles? (I know I'm really young to get Shingles, and there aren't too many sixty-year-olds getting a tattoo.) Also, I have never had any skin problems with my upper back. Would that somehow irritate where my shingles were, even though it's not in the same area?

I'm 46 and in good health. I hardly ever get sick so I assume my immune system is pretty good. I'm always under stress but haven't been any more than usual lately. Since I don't meet any of these risk factors, why did this happen? I know no one can answer that but it seems like there are others in my same situation so I'm really just looking for assurance!
i have severe shooting sharpe pain in left eye and left side of my head. I've never had shingles. Does anyone know how long I'll be off work and will the doctors give you pain meds until the pain leaves or will they just cut you off after first prescription? I can't move til I take the meds. The pain is horrible. I feel like my eyeball is being squeezed! So glad to have found this group. Just...

I recently wrote abt a new friend at church I met who is a street person and who a few weeks ago was having a crisis in which he was questioning God and why he made him homeless, poor etc and how he wanted to now turn his back on God. After that incident he disappeared for a few weeks and recently resurfaced. Last evening I took him for coffee and he shared some of his life with me and...
