DO NOT APPLY ANTI-BACTERIAL OINTMENT. DO NOT. THIS APPLIES TO ALL TATTOOS. It can cause serious allergic reactions in the form of red bumps all over and around the tattoo and it helps your body reject the ink (which you don't want, duh). Simply keep clean with soap and let it heal. If it starts to get itchy and dry apply scentless, mild lotion. #sticknpoke #tattoos

Allergic reactions: Allergic reactions to tattoos are rare. People may have an allergic reaction to tattoos they have had for years.
Rethink Your Ink Tattoos have been around for thousands of years, but they’ve really gone mainstream in the last decade or so. No matter how advanced the technology gets, it still amounts to a puncture wound filled with ink. And for some people, that can cause problems, from allergic reactions to infections and more.
Allergic Reactions Some tattoo dyes, especially red, can cause an allergic reaction. 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. If it’s mild -- itchy skin and a few bumps -- treat it with a steroid cream. If your reaction is worse or if doesn’t go away in a couple of weeks, call your doctor.

PPD in Henna Tattoos Can Cause Allergic Reaction
Got this wonderful tattoo at Red Rocket Tattoo (Erica!) in NYC. She did a great job and Im so in love with it.Unfortunately I had an allergic reaction to the lotion which is why some (tiny) parts are now scarred. I often react allergic to things even after using them for years, so I knew this could happen. I love it anyway.
