About album:
Allergic reaction to tattoo in a 8 year old child. Notice the swelling an exudate.

Perhaps due to the mechanism whereby the skin’s immune system encapsulates pigment particles in fibrous tissue, tattoo inks have been described as “remarkably nonreactive histologically”. Allergies to latex are more common; many artists will use non-latex gloves when required.Allergic reactions to tattoo pigments are uncommon except for certain brands of red and green. People who are sensitive or allergic to certain metals may react to pigments in the skin with swelling and/or itching, and/or oozing of clear fluid called serum. Such reactions are quite rare, however, and some artists will recommend performing a test patch. Due to the fact that laser removal of tattoo ink causes a release of ink into the bloodstream the risk of anaphylactic shock is also present during removal.
