Lots of tattoo artists will actually refuse for that reason. Because the skin is unpredictable, the tattoo may heal irregularly or unevenly which screws up the art and that's bad for you and bad for the artist.

This is actually pretty common. It can affect how the tattoo is carried out or how it heals, and can even open you up to infection. Granted they could have been more tactful in their wording but they were looking out for your best interest and your health.

One generally pays for a tattoo AFTER it's done.

Tattooing over an acne makes the ink set into the acne instead of the skin cells making for an ugly tattoo. It also makes it way easier to get an infection because the needles would pick up the bacteria in the acne and spread it over the whole area. A reputable tattoo artist will refuse to tattoo over even a mild break out.

That's embarrassing, but reasonable enough. Would you rather have an increased risk of infection or good work turned to crud? Or would you rather have no tattoo until your problematic skin is corrected?
