“…Our series illustrates the wide spectrum of cutaneous complications related to tattooing: allergic tattoo reactions, tattoo blow-out, infections and benign and malignant tumours. Some of the complications in our series have been discussed in detail elsewhere: issues related to tattoo blow-out [14] , the difficulties of mole surveillance within tattoos [15,16] , the fortuitous association of melanomas in tattoos [17,18] , the occurrence of benign tumours such as dermatofibroma [19] or outbreaks of mycobacterial infections in tattoo parlors [20,21] , and sarcoidosis on tattoos [22] . We will therefore focus here on some of the specific aspects emerging from our studies.…”

“…Teaching tattooists to identify common adverse tattoo reactions may allow them to more confidently discriminate between adverse and benign conditions. For example, educating tattooists on the ABCDEs of melanoma may better equip them to evaluate skin lesions at the potential site of tattooing, particularly important for clients without regular access to dermatologists [21]. Additional education may empower tattooists to be advocates for skin health in their community, while improving quality of life and clinical outcomes for their clients.…”
