Infected Tattoos Designs, Ideas and Meaning
November 11th 2013
For people who are fond of body art, having tattoos can be a major way of life. Although a nice tattoo design can add a lot of glamour to one’s overall look, there is always the risk of getting an infection due to lack of proper aftercare. Some infections are mild and can be treated quickly, but a severe infection might even lead to death. If you had a tattoo recently and the pain is still persistent even though by now it should have been healed, you might have a mild infection. The area can still look reddish and tender. It can also be somewhat warm to touch. Swelling is another major symptom which indicates that you might have an infected tattoo. This occurs when fluid or pus has accumulated in an inflamed or infected site. Do not ignore these signs of an infected tattoo and seek medical attention as soon as possible in order to prevent further damage. You can also consult your tattoo expert as they may have more experience than conventional doctors when it comes to tattoo-related symptoms.
