Default my tattoos are acting funny

I figured if anyone would have experience with this it would be the Alternachicks

Ever since I have stepped up my workouts and been sweating a lot more, parts of my tattoos have been getting slightly raised and itchy. Has this happened to any of you on here? I thought maybe it's from my shirt rubbing against them while I run, or all the sweating?

It is a normal reaction with tattoos. My physician says it is histamines.
Mine happen during allergy season as well.

Oh I'm glad to know this happens to other people! All of mine do this, from the decade-old ones to the one from last month. Always have. It sometimes means I'm coming down with a cold.

i always thought it was because of the sweat and the friction. i never heard about the histamines, that's really interesting.

SOme of mine do that as well. I have been told its normal If I wear a watch the ones on my wrists get really bad so I think its an allergy thing as well as a sweat/heat thing.
