Sometimes my tattoo swells and looks like it's 3D, where the ink is. (I have had it for 4 years) Is this a bad thing?...
Why does my tattoo raise up from time to time?
Some scarring occurs with every tattoo. Most of the time it's not really noticeable. When the tattoo becomes irritated the scar will raise up for a bit. This can be caused by sun exposure or sunburn, slapping, scratching, rough clothing or even stress. Given time to calm down, the tattoo will lay flat again.
The same reaction commonly occurs with stretchmarks. If you have them, I'm sure you've noticed. Also sometimes the Artist may have used an ink containing too much of one type of Metal or mineral. Personaly I have older tattoos that do this and the artist used India ink. Hope this helps
