These lesions were moderately firm and nontender and exhibited no surrounding inflammation. Other tattoos showed no abnormalities. About 10 years ago, while in Norfolk, Va., the patient received a tattoo of the right deltoid area. About seven months later his right forearm was tattooed in the same establishment. Since then he has had many other tattoos with no untoward response until about two weeks ago.
