Just had a allergy test with like 150 boxes on my back to see what I am allergic too. Originally went in because I kept getting small rashes underneath wrist areas (watch) and waist (belt buckle).

Found out I am allergic to the following:
Potassium dichromate
Nickel
Cobalt


Which the first thing they said is I can't get a tattoo, alot of dyes in inks use one of or more of the 3 items posted. Any been thru this or have a solution? I have saved up for YEARS to get my sleeve done :sadwavey:

The amount of nickel in a watch/belt compared to a tattoo is much different. A lot of people have problems with watches and have tattoos without having any problems.

Hmm 20% content of nickel rubbing no your skin, vs 5% permamently in your skin. Doesn't sound like a trade off to me.

Looking for someone has experience in this, not just taking a guess. :nono:

I work in a tattoo shop. I have experience. The owner of our shop has a nickel allergy and has full sleeves.
