Ms. X, 21, consults us because it has a feeling of cooking, and heat at a tattoo done the day before. She went to see a tattoo artist who was well established in his city. However, she is afraid of having an infectious problem following the realization of this act. Clinically, we highlight a very homogeneous erythematous beach all around his tattoo. In fact this reaction is very common, and corresponds to an inflammatory reaction secondary to the realization of his tattoo.
