Im having an issue. I got tattoed about a year and a half ago, the guy was heavy handed and tatooed to deep, but they healed up fine initailly.
Now they are stating to raise up like there inflamed, over a year later. Ine has been itching like mad and the pigment is coming out in dry skin. Is that normal? He was a legit pro just heavy handed. Now the line work is fading as is the shading as it peels

I used to feel the same way. Still do, to a large extent... I'm a pretty anxious person so I probably always will.

Oddly enough, that's actually a big part of WHY I got a tattoo (upper right arm. I'll post a pic when I can find it) - it was basically a giant "**** you" to that part of myself, a constant reminder that I can't always take life so seriously.

tattoos should never be puffed up or raised. you body probably scarred because of the digging in. that or it is attacking the ink, either way, not normal. when you rub your hand over a tattoo done right, if your eyes are closed, you shouldn't be able to tell where it begins by feel.

Inflammation is an immune system response, so it would indicate the latter, if anything. Admittedly, I'm not an expert tattoos so I can't say for certain WHY there might be an immune response though.

Something bad in the ink could do it, but I doubt it would only start causing problems after so long. I'm not sure if going too far into the dermis or subcutaneous tissue could somehow cause an issue over a year later, but it seems most likely.

It wasnt puffed up when it was done [well besides scabbing up very slighly], It is only now starting to puff up and flake [kind of like a sunburn] its wierd, either way I'm gonna call my doc and check with him.

The last one was done by my brother-in-law who was trying to get into tattooing. I plan on completing my entire lower right leg at some point with that part being dressed up better. It's a representation of Orion from the 1500's. I've always loved that constellation because it is very prominent over the entire east coast during the fall, my favorite season. The Eagle was still healing in this picture btw. It's 4 years old now.

And here's my "brewing" wizard. This is a crappy picture that I just took (I couldn't find a good one on my computer), but within the spell above his head are 4 symbols I drew representing hops, water, yeast and barley. This was a major revamping of one of my first tattoos. The wizard was originally taken out of a Windows 95 book of clip art.
