I have a keloid on the bottom of my chin around the throat area and I believe that's the only keloid I have. I would like to get piercings and tattoos but my doctor and my mom isn't sure if I will keloid again. Also, I've had surgery done twice so it went down. Will I get a keloid if I get my nose and ears pierced ?

Comanagement of scars in patients prone to keloids
There is a finite possibility you will develop a keloid. You may want to have a keloid expert, like myself, comanage your scars if you do decide to undergo the procedure.
