I am allergic to all metals but titanium. It causes a skin reaction of redness and swelling. I was debating getting a tattoo. Can I with this allergy?

In brief: Would not advise it

it may be wise you're not to do the tattoo.
If you wish to pursue your choice you need to see a dermatologist who can skin test you to see exactly what metals you may be allergic to. A lot of people are allergic to nickel, but a dermatologist can clarify this.

Tattoo inks contain mercury, cadmium, nickel, copper, iron and barium. All metals. Recipe for disaster. Don't do it.
