Still, no matter how advanced the technology gets, a tattoo amounts to a puncture wound filled with ink. And for some people, that can cause problems, from allergic reactions to infections and more. Some tattoo dyes, especially red and yellow, can cause an allergic reaction, especially when exposed to sunlight.

The area around your tattoo might itch or swell, or you could get a rash. It can happen right after you get the tattoo, or years later. Some ink reacts to light, especially sunlight. This is most common with yellow inks, but it can happen with red, too. Again, a mild case should get better with time and antihistamines or steroid creams, but if not, check with your doctor.

If your skin swells, turns red, or feels tender, or you notice a pus-like drainage from the tattoo, call the doctor. You may need antibiotics to clear it up. Sometimes your immune system thinks the pigment in tattoo ink is a threat and sends cells to the area to fight it. These cells clump together around the tattoo and create nodules which are called granulomas. If you see them, talk to your doctor.

They might run tests to rule out other causes. Keloids are areas of scar tissue that are raised from the skin. They can start under the tattoo and spread out. Keloids run in families and are more likely to affect people with dark skin. Treatment starts with OTC silicon products and steroid shots or prescription creams.

If it's removed surgically, the keloid could grow back even larger without close follow up care from your doctor. If you have them already or someone in your family does, you might want to avoid tattoos. Tattoo needles can get bloody.

Choose your tattoo artist wisely. Make sure needles and other instruments are sterilized and that your artist wears gloves. You may notice that a tattooed area swells or burns when you get an MRI. This is rare and usually goes away without causing problems.

Tell your radiologist or technician about your tattoos so they can take precautions. Your skin might not react, but the tattoo could affect the quality of the image. And it can cause what was a local reaction to spread. Skin Problems and Treatments Slideshows. Medically Reviewed by Stephanie S.
