Is It Safe To Apply Cosmetic Tattoos When You’re Allergic To Seafood?

It’s quite normal to be allergic to something, but it does not and should not by any means stop anyone from looking as beautiful. Cosmetic tattoos help us look beautiful without all of the stress that comes with traditional makeup. However, many people still have fears and ask whether it is safe to apply cosmetic tattoos even if they are allergic to seafood. 

At No Filter Beauty, we are professional and certified technicians who understand everything about cosmetic tattoos and the allergies that can be caused by cosmetic tattoos, and we can rightly say that seafood is not one of them. However, before going any further, let’s take a look at tattoo allergic reactions:

  • Photosensitivity: when their tattoos are exposed to the sun, particularly those with yellow colours, there are allergic reactions. This happens because the yellow-coloured pigments react when exposed to the sun.
  • Inflammatory allergic reactions: this is an allergic reaction that occurs as a result of contact with needles, but this goes away within three to four weeks.
  • Dermatitis: this is an allergic reaction caused by mercury found in the red tattoo ink.
  • Granulomas: these are bumps that occur at the site where the tattoo was done, and it often goes away with time. 

These are all allergic reactions caused by cosmetic tattoos, all of which can be solved and prevented with professionals from No Filter Beauty. Many people consider the mercury in red tattoo ink as a factor specifically because there is mercury in seafood that can trigger a reaction.

However, this is not the case. When it comes to cosmetic tattoos and allergies, the first thing you need to do is ensure that you make all your allergies known to your technician. Of course, we always ask questions, but you have to always ensure that you do not leave anything out.

Another thing you need to do is ensure that your technician practices proper hygiene and the right level of professionalism when it comes to cosmetic tattoo application. This is important because most of the time, the so-called allergic reactions we experience occur as a result of poor practices and a lack of proper hygiene, leaving us facing a lot of complications over time. 

Finally, you need to ensure that your technician is fully certified to handle your cosmetic tattoos. You might end up working with someone without the right tools and certifications, which would cause a lot of allergic reactions you never expected. 

Are there allergies that can be caused by cosmetic tattoos? Yes, there are. Is there anything specific to seafood? No. The thing is that you need to make sure that you work with the right people to avoid unnecessary complications.

At No Filter Beauty, we take client satisfaction and safety seriously, which is why we deliver the best all the time and ensure that you look beautiful without any fears or worries about allergic reactions. For more information, contact us today.
