Signs & Symptoms
of Infection


A slight amount of swelling is typical for a fresh tattoo. If swelling becomes excessive, uncomfortable and you feel the pain radiating beyond the site of the tattoo, then this is a sign of infection.


Fever is a symptom of an underlying condition, which is most often an infection. Please contact a medical provider if you think you may have a possible infection Void any  additional Hair Replacement procedures.
