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.

    • I've added a couple since this photo, but this will do. I have both of my lower legs covered now essentially, front and back. Just adding little tattoos I like now and then to fill up the small spaces that I have left. Will probably add some stars and stuff at some point.  
    • Yes indeed. I am keenly aware that "tats are forever." It took me a long time to get the one I have. I hear you about just "filling up space," too. I just think it looks lonely or something....unfinished? I dunno. I thought we were going to put it on the inside of my leg and lower. The artist thought the front of my leg up higher was better. I forget why but it made sense. I've had the rose for a month now. Enough time to think "it's fine as is" and "it needs more."  We shall see. I have so much more respect for artists now that I've gotten one. It is a craft that requires really special talent. I'd love to see a picture of your leg. If not, no worries. Thanks for your input.😊
