Tatoo reaction

honeyhoney posted:
I have a tattoo of a heart and have a reaction to the red ink used. It feels like a callous and itches sometimes when I touch it. I went to a dermatologist and he wants to laser it off, but I don't want to go that route because it has a sentimental story behind it. What is your opinion? I had steroids injected into it one time which helped with the swelling but the tat. is still real hard feeling. I don't know what to do.
