Red tattoo reactions.

Author information

Abstract

Considering the ever increasing popularity of tattoos, significant reactions remain unusual. Red pigments are the commonest cause of delayed tattoo reactions. Histology typically shows extensive lichenoid basal damage, well away from the dermal pigment. We report two cases of lichenoid reactions to red tattoo pigment and review the literature on the subject.
