HI EVERYONE...I HAVE A QUESTION I NEED HELP WITH

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, let me start off saying I'm 60plus years old and have a brief question for anyone who can help me. 

I got a tattoo when I was 55 years old to celebrate my retirement and in honor my mother and grandparents from Scotland. I got a thistle on my outside, lower left ankle. It's about 3" high. My question is, I've had it now for over 10 years and for the last year or so I notice it is bumpy and itches. The bumps are like the size of small peas and are all within the lines of the tattoo. Has anyone ever heard of this? Is there anything I should be afraid of and is there any way to fix this? Thank you for any help you can offer me and stay well !!

Thank you for your help. I did do a search a while back and there was something about having an MRI done. I guess they are supposed to cover it or something...it said it raises the red pigments in the tattoo. 

 

Would love to hear from others if it has happened to anyone else.

Best to go see your local doctor. I doubt it is tattoo related as you said you had the tattoo for more than 10 years.

I know this is kind of old but I wanted to put my input on this so I am allergic to everything except my tattoos when my tattoos come in contact with something I’m allergic to the hive and look really weird thankfully it goes away after a week or so

Thank you for your response! It's never too late as I am still looking for opinions on this. Mine has been like this for a couple of years or so now. With the pandemic, I haven't wanted to go have it looked at. Again, I thank you for your help and if anyone else has any input, I'm more than happy to hear it! ☮️
