Allergic Reaction to only white ink?

Recommended Posts

I got this tattoo over a month ago and since then everything has seemed to heal fine. The whites of the egg however have been discolored and im wondering what i should do. There has been no scarring or raising skin. only discoloration for what I think should be white. Do you think there is anything wrong? Did i take care of this incorrectly? i'll provide both a current pic (Close up) and a less quality pic (Zoomed out) of the day i got it. PS the redness outside of that tatto was just me pinching the skin because this is on my ribs and i cant see it very well.

I think the term 'allergic reaction' is waaaaaaaaay over used. I don't see anything that would qualify as an allergic reaction here. I agree with @SStu, see the tattoo artist that did this.

Yep. Nothing allergic about it. White doesn't look the same after it heals. It pretty much totally disappeared on my very first tattoo.

Just an old man grousing, but I get tired of people saying they are allergic to ink every time it itches. I did a lot of research on ink allergies before I had my first tattoo. The number of actual verified cases of an allergic reaction to tattoo ink is very, very small.

Yup. I'm not an old man, but I feel the same. 🙂 NOPE NOPE NOPE.

    • unless this is a joke, personally for me, a guy doing tattoos out of a MH would be a red flag. Especially for a first tattoo,I would do some more research of artists that you would like to get work from. I would look at established busy shops.
    • Hi there I'm getting ready to get my first tatoo of many and I I have some concerns about the person doing the job at the moment the guy I'm getting the tattoo from doesn't have his own shop so he's doing it out of an RV is there anything I should look out for ?
    • I got the Kiehls today and used it after my shower. I absolutely love it! It keeps my skin moisturized much longer than any lotion I’ve used and really brings out the color of my tattoos! Great product worth the money. Thanks everyone for all the recommendations.
