I got a tattoo on my right calf on Saturday evening, it is now Tuesday and the area is still REALLY sore, it hurts to walk. Also my right ankle is swelling to almost double it's normal size. Is this normal? If so, how long should I experience this soreness? Or do you think it's infected and I should see a doctor?

See a doctor ASAP. It shouldn't last any longer than a sunburn.

I've got a couple tattoos but no swelling...Get to the ER asap...though it's normal for tattoos to be sore for a couple weeks after..the swollen ankle thing is not normal

Best Answer

Go to the hospital, asap. I have 4 tattoos and none of them reacted that severely or were sore for that long. It definitely sounds like an allergic reaction, possibly to the ink.
