Intenze ink is a natural ink that contains natural pigments and alcohol. Its possible that you are allergic to the ingredients however its not too common, except with reds. It may be that you re allergic to something else the artist used as well, such as latex in their gloves.

I am not really familiar with intenze tattoos. But, typically, when people have a reaction to ink, it gets red, itchy, or bumpy, or possibly looks infected. I would suggest going into the shop where you got it done and ask if it looks like a reaction, if they say yes, contact a medical professional.

Intenze ink has natural pigments and alcohol. Some allergic reactions to the red ink. Could be latex allergy from artists latex gloves. Redness and swelling normal for 2-3 weeks.

Red bumps and light swelling can be normal, along with some pinkness right around the tattoo. If the pain and swelling does not subside, or the pinkness starts extending beyond right around the tattoo, you should see a doctor, as you could have an infection.

Make sure it is not just from the actual tattooing (red, slightly itchy, or sore). If there is a rash, flaky skin, or hives, consult a physician.

Any tattoo results in redness and swelling for 2-3 weeks. Seek medical advice, especially for a red inflammation or flaky red rash or signs of infection.

If you are allergic to the ink, you are probably experiencing hives. How long has it been since the tattoo? It could be healing. Call your artist!
