How Can You Tell If a Tattoo Is Infected?

Answer

A tattoo infection can be caused by dirty inking practices or poor tattoo care. You can tell if your tattoo is infected by looking signs such as a red haze surrounding the tattoo after its already past a week or more of the healing process which also could be accompanied by a white haze over sections of the tattoo, indentation of the tattoo, extreme scabbing which may turn green or yellowish, bad odour and puss.
