    Sounds like impiteigo to me, but this isnt a complaint for new tattoos, or i dont think it is.
    Have a look at Google images and see pics of it. I had it myself under my chin, and it spreads like wildfire if you touch it.

    Only one cure is antibiotics. NOTHING else!

    I realise this is an old thread but does anyone know what that would have been? I would say it sound like an infected tat/skin infection possibly thro' bad hygiene - maybe something in the kit wasn't sterile? Anyone ever had this type of prob - or know of it? Would agree it sounds like a trip to docs and antibiotics!

    That sounds like it could be an allergic reaction to the ink,(if the spots came up quickly) otherwise its probably an infection of some description = doctors + antibiotics !!!.......no matter who you are tattooing,get them to fill in a consent form.
