    Bumps on black ink

    I had some weird bumps come up in the color shading of one of my tattoos, and ended up vitamin E oil on the spots. That helped clear them up quite a bit, although it was certainly a different case than what you have. Still might be worth a shot if you don't get any other answers...

    Latest tattoo lowdown.....

    well, squid pants getting the layers...finished my Five Deadly Venoms themed thigh tattoo collage ! My homie Rich Harding (Champion Tattoo Edmonton, AB) whipped in some some smoke-grey shading behind the 2nd layer black widow spider and centipede he did last month.. The spider webbing is layered on top of my 9 year old p-knee tattoos. really tied everything together and am very happy with the results. it is healing great. ...and then I had the very exciting, rare and unique opportunity to tattoo myself for the first time. I did the top square inch of red background behind the 5 year old yin-yang auspicious spider. Rich said, you've got all these tattoos budd, you need to fill in at least a small part of your bodysuit on your own. Quitting my day job...SORRY BOOKS CLOSED UNTIL 2022 haha

    Bumps on black ink

    @Sol James I’ve also had ink raise before but now it’s over 1 month and bumps... it is mostly on line work and a couple within the shading on my right foot. They are still sore when I bump them and have been a little itchy again. I think being postpartum could be a reason my body is reacting to the ink or tattoos in general. Hormones all over the place... perhaps my body is attacking the ink and it’ll take time for it to realize its not a threat. I’ll be sure to post updates, I know it’s a curious topic 😞

    Bumps on black ink

    @bbontheb I scheduled an appointment with my dermatologist after that just to make sure. Doctors thought I may have sarcoidosis years ago but ruled it out... however the symptoms have arised again and this one.... Hopefully it’s just some strange delayed reaction 😭

    Did the Dr recommend seeing a dermatologist? Should do a biopsy to confirm.

    Bumps on black ink

    It seems to be mostly on the line work, does it not? Rather than on shaded areas.... the line work on mine sometimes raises when I’m very hot.. Granted, it’s never in lumps like that, nor is it as much. Sorry I can’t help with a diagnosis. Do you mind me asking why you’ve dismissed pregnancy as a cause? My wife has just had a baby and it’s crazy how the body reacts!

    If you have limits, it would be useful to pin your area down a little better than Eastern Iowa and how far you are willing to drive.

    Are you still bumpy?
  18. My dad and stepmom were both cool with it and curious to see my first (and each one since). My stepdad who I’m super close with (and isn’t with my mom anymore) hates them but never says anything negative about them. The occasional vague comment about not liking tattoos but never directed at me lol. And my mom, who I was most worried about found out on Facebook picture I was tagged in. She had moved out state recently and just texted me with questions and asking for pictures which was surprising. I guess I lucked out because both my older sisters have tattoos so was almost expected from me.

    I asked my doctor about sarcoidosis and he said no 😕 but I thought that as well...

    Post awesome things you have been doing recently

    @SStu @pidjones Yes, yes, YES! It's going to be interesting, no doubt. I will say that the whole hearing aid thing is such a racket. No way to get real pricing up front, insurance doesn't cover them and it's a real PITA to get setup but I am crossing my fingers it will be worth it. 🙂

  25. Thank you! Cabbage can be really nice, I know:) What can you say about this artist? https://www.instagram.com/nesvetov/
  26. Listen, it doesn't look like a cabbage but even if it did, you know owe anyone an explanation. Cabbages, btw, are really rad examples of nature being beautiful.
  27. If anyone looks at that and thinks it is a cabbage they are just stupid.
