When your tattoo is itching, it can mean several things. First, it may be an indication of healing. As your skin heals, it will naturally itch and may even appear bumpy or scabby, which is perfectly normal. Itching can also occur due to exposure to allergens, such as lotions, perfumes, or sunscreens. Finally, it may be a sign of infection. If you notice any signs of infection such as redness, swelling, warmth, oozing, or other unusual colors around your tattoo, you should contact your doctor. Itching is a common symptom of infection, so it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
