Having a tattoo becomes more and more common! Today we propose all the forms, all the colors, to place in different places of the body. Why not ? But even if wearing a tattoo has become almost "commonplace", this should not prevent you from taking certain precautions to avoid possible complications.
Whether you choose a permanent tattoo in ink or an ephemeral henna tattoo on the beach, you should know that these practices remain an assault on the skin and are not without risk. Indeed, you can develop a more or less important allergy. Knowing that this problem can manifest several weeks to several months after the tattoo.
Of course, the most vigilant must be those who already know they are allergic (with contact allergies), or have skin problems.Note also that some colors are more allergenic than others because of the pigments contained in these tattoos. Better to be vigilant and learn!
