“Tattoo inks contaminated with microorganisms can cause infections and lead to serious health injuries when injected into the skin during a tattooing procedure, since there is an increased risk of infection any time the skin barrier is broken.”

Anyone that has had a tattoo done recently or is planning to should keep an eye out for certain side effects. This includes rashes that develop on the skin near the tattoo’s location. Also look out for lesions consisting of red papules in the area where the tattoo is. These side effects are sometimes hard to spot because of their similarity to an allergic reaction.
