The practice of adorning the body with permanent ink dates back to the late Neolithic period. Today, a large proportion of the younger generation has at least one tattoo. Despite the recent popularity of tattoos, there are prolific reports within the literature detailing the adverse cutaneous reactions that occur following the intradermal injection of tattoo inks. Such reactions can occur immediately or years later. In addition to these known reactions, consumer preference for “animal-friendly” products has shifted the ingredients used in tattoos and has ushered in the era of “vegan tattoos.” Because of its recent emergence and the lack of regulation of intradermal pigment by the United States Food and Drug Administration, we remain unsure of the potential reactions of these new ingredients. Currently, we can only predict complications by extrapolating from the known reactions of the topical administration of these same plant-based ingredients. In this article, we elucidate some potential reactions in an effort to warn the dermatologic community of the need to educate patients and encourage Federal reporting and regulation.
