THE RED BUMPS MIGHT BE FROM THE BODY HEALING THE TATOO. AND OR MAYBE YOUR TATOO ARTISTS HAD A HEAVY HAND AND DUG HARDER WITH THE TATTOO GUN. GET SOME A&D OINMENT AND KEEP IT WELL MOISTURIZED Red bumps have nothing to do with how the tattoo artist applies the tattoo, but more likely indicates that you are allergic to something you are putting on your tattoo. That is very common to happen if you are using neosporin or polysporin ointments. stop using any type of ointments because they can clog your pores and also cause bumps to form, switch to a light hand cream instead. something that is unscented and for sensitive skin is better. try to avoid any moisturizers with lanolin. if your tattoo feels dry, it needs some moisturizer, if it feels fine, leave it alone. too much moisturizer can also be bad. If you are concerned, see your doctor or a dermatologist. they can prescribe you proper medication to treat an allergic reaction.

What can cause spots on your vagina but they don't itch?

Genital warts can somtimes cause itchless bumps. There are a million other bumps you can get down there however. The best thing to do would be to see a doctor while the bumps are still present. A good doctor should be able to tell what they are by a visual inspection of them. You can also have hair follicles. Have you shaved down there lately? I used to get bumps all the time from shaving.

How much should a tattoo cost if it is on your ribs?

First thing I want to say, is that, I have never ever heard of someone wanting to get a tattoo on their ribs and I personally think its quite creative. Anyways, I do know that the average tattoo is around $200. Depending on where it is, the price will rise. It the price will change also, depending on the size of the tattoo. So I would think that the price would be around 1000 dollars. Depending on the size.
