Good Afternoon and Welcome to HealingWell.
I would check with your dermotologist before getting a tattoo.
Tattoos breach the skin, which means that skin infections and other complications are possible.
Tattoo dyes — especially red dye — can cause allergic skin reactions, resulting in an itchy rash at the tattoo site. This may occur even years after you get the tattoo.
Sometimes bumps called granulomas form around tattoo ink — especially red ink. Tattooing can also lead to raised areas caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue (keloids).
Perhaps another member who actually has dermographic urticaria will be along to give you information.
Good luck and stick with us.
