This could be possibly related to the tattoo procedure. There is a risk of infection with such a long procedure carried out by an unlicensed person. The signs to watch for are a fever developing, further vomiting of increasing pain in the region of the tattoo. If any of these occur, I would suggest a visit to the emergency doctor for assessment.
