Why is my tattoo swollen and burning/itching? & the little hole looks like the ink may be rejecting

Bottom right heel, I have a solid black tattoo.. I've had it for a year. Got it touched up after like 7 months of having it. Never had an issue till tonight. It's swollen a bit and burns more than it itches. Never happened before. I looked up some possible reason, maybe dehydrated cause I was out in 98 degree weather yesterday by the pool tanning, may be a sun burn, but my back tattoo is fine. But IDK what else to do. The burning stopped after applying h2ocean tattoo ointment. But it's still swollen. There's a little hole in my tattoo that looks like the ink maybe be coming out, check pics!!!
