Do tattoos itch after a time?

I have had permanent makeup done and I'm always itching

Yes if you are allergic to inks used, chemicals also hurt, if red color is prominently used and contains tar contents more then the permissible limit may cause cancer too.

With all due respect, being inked does cause cancer. You are speaking about red dye number (I dont remember) which is used to color candy, frostings, etc. It is not the same by any means, since it is a dye, as ink used for tattooing. Enjoy your day.

It is not normal for tattoos to itch, it could be a deadly infection...

Maybe it is part of the healing. After all it is an invasive procedures and some tissue was damaged.

It was done years ago and I wondered if everyone else had the problem. I was one of her first clients and I think there was nerve damage or scar tissue or something.

The itching is caused from the slight scabbing which occurs from the needle piercing your skin to apply the ink. Keep an antibiotic ointment on until healed (uncovered). This will assist with the itching.
