Electric needle: Syringoma can often be treated with an electric needle called a hyfrecator. I treat these often in my office.

No: It is not safe. Tattoo inks are not fda approved and often can have rather toxic ingredients. Small amounts of these materials can enter the blood stream and potentially affect the unborn child.

Mostly red with pain: Symptoms of any infection, whether it is staph or otherwise, usually include swelling, redness, and pain. Staph infections often also have a honey-colored crust on the skin surface. It is best to have any area you suspect is infected evaluated by a physician.
