Allergies to tattoo inks can range from an allergy to the ink base itself or to the color of ink and the combination of colors the tattoo color is made from.

IF you have an allergy to any type of metal that is the most common. Colors such as red and orange contain certain types of metal. Just as a piercing made from silver may affect you the same goes for tattoos. Check for bumps or rash on the tattoo.
