Big mobilization : I am not a fan of tattoos, But it may not be exactly the tattoo but cannot completely rule it out. In order to do the tattoo you had to be immobilized for quite a while and that might be the reason that you know I have some musculoskeletal pain. I would just go ahead and exercise that arm and see if that would help
