    maybe cause i'm a pale mofo? or could it be the way it was done, like thicker or something? i asked a tattoo guy once and he said it happens if you do too much heroin :eek3: but im pretty sure he was kidding

    :rofl: I'm sure you will be fine....I'm pasty as fuck and have thicker lines, but I also never touch it or scratch it or really even look at it any more :o

    Some days I can definitely feel the lines on my tats more than others..maybe it has something to do with fluid retention? :dunno:
    Doesn't affect their quality as far as I've seen so go figure.

    My tattoos raise up when I get really upset or nervous. It's the weirdest thing. It's not the whole tattoo either, just parts of it, then it goes away when I've calmed down.

    Would make sense...blood goes to the surface of the skin when you get angry/upset (flushing)...wonder if a tat counts as scar tissue? Or maybe just the fact that the ink is there means blood rising to the surface pushes it up farther than normal? :dunno:

    mine does it too, its solid black as well, i posted a pic of it in a nother thread, but it will puff up sometimes in certain areas too, havent noticed when it does, but usually its warmer in those areas.

    it is scar tissue and it means whoever did you tattooed you way too deep.

    if its raised up all of the time yes

    if its only at certain times then its not scar tissue. i have work done that only raises up when my cat or dog brushes against it(i have animal allergies) and these arent scarred.

    Mine raise up when I get bug bites on them. Not the whole thing though, just the outlines.

    it only happens sometimes. I'd be pissed if it was really just scarring. if i scratch at it it raises, stuff like that.

    mine does when i get really sweaty or hot. like at the same times as my face would get flushed. glad to know i'm not alone on this one, freaked me out the first few times. oh yea btw had it a little over a year, on my forearm.

    ive had my tats raise up a few times before, when it does, it's usually itching... but it'll go away in a few minutes if i just leave it alone.

    my tat is new ( 2 mos) and it hasnt raised up at all yet ..... it healed amazingly fast and with hardly any scabbing or peeling so maybe mine never will ? im thinking it depends on each persons tattoo artist and their own body/skin ??
