Why do you ask?: If you're going to get a tattoo, it's critical that you be certain that this is what you want. I have two, both extremely personal and precious to me.

I got a tattoo over a week ago and parts of it are still sore and very warm to the tough. It's now getting itchy. What do I do?
R/o skin infection: The worst thing is to scratch when the scabs are itchy. Apply bacitracin ointment three times a day to the affected area of skin. Watch for pus draning from any open sores. Pain, redness and warmth are signs of infection. but sometimes healing process can also cause inflamation. Best to be safe and clean the area with antiseptics regularly and use antibiotics topically until healed. ...Read more

Got tattoo on inner wrist. It is day 6 & now hand & arm is sore & feels stiff. Tattoo looks & feels fine. No signs of infection. Is stiffness normal?
Sore wrist: This is not a normal reaction to tattooing pigment. If you were allergic or infected there should be pain, tenderness and swelling with redness.The procedure may have stirred up a carpal tunnel syndrome where numbness of the fingers could be a clue. For that use a wrist splint. Does not sound like a complication of pregnancy. Send more info since many Dxs cause these symptoms. ...Read more

Coughing, sore throat, nasal drip, head hurts for over a week after getting tattoo. Should i get tested for anything specific?
I have a tattoo that was done by an amateur on my upper left arm 9 years ago. Sometimes, but not always, it burns and is tender to the touch.
Bad ink: It was likely done with a conveniently available "ink" that is not meant for human / skin contact. Your body is reacting to it, and it will likely get worse over time, eventually eroding to the surface. See a dermatologist or plastic surgeon who can help--likely by abrading down to the ink or lasering it to see if stabilizes. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a tattoo on my thigh that was for about 4 months ago now and I'm still feeling tenderness and aching around my leg. Could this be nerve damage?
Leg pain: It is plausible that with tattoo could have damaged a peripheral nerve. Is there any swelling at the site? It could be infected as well. I suggest that you see a local physician to have this site examined. I did a sabbatical in the UK 15 years ago, so I know the difficulty in scheduling an appointment at the NHS. ...Read more
