Every once in a while the black ink in my tattoos raises. Some of my tats are more than 10 years old. Anyone experience this or know why it happens?

I get the same with red - think it's a reaction, like Trgdy ann says.

your skin has a reaction to the ink when your body undercomes certain conditions such as heat, itching, slapping, stress, or sickness. A few of my tattoos sweel and itch under these conditions and many others due to it's nothing to worry about it.

scarring can occur through blunt, worn or hooked needles. over tattooing packing in to much pigment. some people can have problems with certain colors too much heat can raise affected areas but when your body cools down so can the swelling

Actually, if your body has come in contact with some type of virus or bacteria, your immune system will try to find that bug and destroy it. Because your tattoo is a foreign body, your immune system will also attack it, thus sometimes the itching and swelling.
