Honestly, I had to do some research on this one. I have never encountered it in a client, so I did some reading, predominately from the CDC concerning the symptoms and treatments. First I must advise, as I would for anyone with a chronic illness, to consult a physician first. Now this is what I offer...

No symptoms of the illness would preclude you from getting a piercing. The ability to maintain a certain position for lengths of time, as would be necessary in a tattoo, for example, might be problematic for those with SEVERE symptom.

No common treatments for this disorder, including pharmaceutical, would interfere with the healing of this or any modification, and some like NSAIs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) are actually beneficial for piercings also.

So, all in all, I would have no problems with performing the procedure. I would find a professional who is current on First-Aid and CPR certifications (no, not everyone is) just as an added precaution. Keep an eye on yourself and your healing progress and don't be shy about contacting your piercer and or a health care professional if problems occur.
