Thanks for the query.

In tattooing needles are pierced and hence there is always a chance of infection.

You might have developed furunculosis.

It is a deep bacterial infection.

The bacteria might have been driven deep with the infected needle.

Treatment with oral and topical antibiotics is required.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
