A why so serious tattoo is a bold statement about your personality. It can also be a reminder to always keep a twisted sense of humor and never take life too seriously. The Joker’s maniacal grin and mischievous eyes are sure to attract attention with this dynamic design. This tattoo captures the yin and yang of good and evil, showing that you can find laughter in chaos.
Tattoo infections are common, especially if you use contaminated needles or ink. This is why it’s important to only get tattoos in a professional shop that follows all blood borne pathogen and state hygienic mandates. The infection could be caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or other germs. If it’s not treated right away, it can spread to other parts of the body. Moreover, tattoos can prevent doctors from getting clear images during an MRI scan.
Infections can cause itching, swelling, rashes, and other skin symptoms. If you notice any of these symptoms, see a dermatologist for treatment.
An allergic reaction to the ink is another possibility. Symptoms can include itching, swelling and a red, raised bump that looks like a faint rash. You can try over the counter medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or NSAIDs to ease the pain and inflammation. You can also use an antihistamine such as Benadryl to reduce your allergy symptoms. Alternatively, you can apply a moisturizing lotion to your skin to stop the itching and help the area heal.
