Allergy to PPD and getting a tattoo?

Recommended Posts

So I recently discovered (afternoon booking and paying a deposit for my first tattoo) that I’m allergic to ppd in hair dye, which really sucks! I’ve contacted my artist and found what inks they’ve used and contacted the company, they say that there is no ppd but some compounds that may be similar to it. Has anybody else who suffers from this gotten a tattoo after? And if there was a reaction would it be as serious as a ppd allergy (which has been hell!) or is it just not worth the risk? any help or advice is appreciated :)

Go and ask for a patch test with the artist same as you would do with a hair dresser

find out which colours affect you and avoid them there is ways around it
