Why am I getting little white bumps on my tattoo? (photo)
The white bumps are likely milia (“oil” seeds) forming just beneath the skin. This may have occurred due to surface injury caused by the tattooing process. A close physical examination by your doctor is needed to confirm the diagnosis.
After confirming the diagnosis, the milia may be removed by making a small nick on the skin and extracting the milia seed under topical anaesthesia.
Hope this helps!
