ancer called squamous cell carcinoma. Because it is hard to distinguish from skin cancer, the bump could lead to potentially unnecessary and expensive skin cancer treatment, including surgery, Shinohara said.

She offered the following advice for people who want to get a tattoo:

  • Go to a professional tattoo parlor and to a tattoo artist who is licensed according to state requirements. Insist on seeing tattoo equipment in sterile packaging.
  • Tell the tattoo artist if you have a reaction. If a problem lasts more than one to two weeks, see a dermatologist.
  • People with a chronic skin condition such as psoriasis, eczema or a tendency toward keloid scarring should check with a dermatologist before getting a tattoo.
  • Do not get a tattoo over a mole. Doing so will make it more difficult to diagnose a problem if the mole changes in the future.
