Tattoo itch?

Recommended Posts

Well I find myself in a strange problem. I got 3 tattoos on my lower arm and two of them healed fine now the newest one is acting strange - got some mid scabbing in days 3 to 7 and during that time most of them came off and after scabs came off insane itchness started with couple of pink bumps showing in tattoo area ( not only bumps itch but whole tattoo area) now it is day 10 for this tattoo and I cant stand this itching no more scabs are visible just some skin flaking and couple of pink bumps. Could this be normal or is it possible I am having some kind of allergic reaction? Any response is appreciated

Yes it is possible it could also just be healing at a different time of year, or healing from a different artist etc.

Try some cortisone or Benadryl cream on it. It doesn't sound like it is bad enough to go to the doctor yet. You can always ask your tattooer.
