I got my cover up tattoo on Friday and yesterday I started breaking out in hives. I have been told that I am having a reaction to the ink, which has never happened with past tattoos. I am taking a steriod in hopes that, that will clear it up somewhat, but what I would like to know is this:

How long will it last?
How can I help it go away faster?
And have any of you had a reaction like this?

So, i called the tattoo artist and asked if there was anything unsual that he might have used on my tattoo that would cause the reaction i'm having. He said 2 things. 1. I could be allergic to the A and D ointement or 2. the spray he used on my skin had lidocaine in it! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!? I'M SEVERELY ALLREGIC TO PRODUCTS WITH ANYTHING CAINE IN IT!

So thank you so much everyone for your help <3
And I would have cvalled him first, but he is only open from 7 pm til 2 am :)

Pics may be very large :(
