  1. Thank-you for the reply. As much as I understand the secrecy, it's quite frustrating. Upon contact I get immediate swelling, hives then blisters. They break and the raw skin becomes an induced eczema lasting about a week. I usually need a prescribed cortisone to calm it down. I've had it touch open cuts and the reaction is amplified and painful; having it repeatedly injected... Not to mention the scaring.
  2. Hi, my name is Catherine, I currently do not have any tattoos but would very much like one. What's holding me back is an allergy to "propylene glycol" which to my understanding is a significant ingredient in tattoo ink. I've done some research online and stopped in a few parlours in my area and have not had much luck in finding out if there are inks available without this chemical, even amongst vegan and "hypo-allergenic" formulas; it is an approved and generally benign chemical, allergies are fairly rare. Thought I'd throw myself out there online, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
