Thanks for the query.
HPV virus is known to cause warts. Though you may not be visualising a wart in the area of the planned tattooing, the virus remains vigilant in your body.
Any scratching or abrasion of the skin can lead to the spread of the virus and formation of new warts. It will traumatize the skin and cause the infection to spread beyond control. Any stress to the body or the immune system can lead to the spread of the virus.
Hence, it is recommended that you avoid getting the tattoo done anywhere in your body if you are infected by HPV.
Feel free to write back for any further clarifications.
Hope this helped.
