How Do I Get Rid Of Acne On And Around My Tattoo?

I got a tattoo in September 2008, so it has been several months since. However, i have recently discovered acne forming in and around my tattoo. The tattoo is on my left shoulder blade, and it is in a spot where i dont normally get acne. How do i get rid of this acne problem without harming the tattoo itself, and why is this happening?

I had a similar problem w/ my tattoo. I started rubbing my tattoo down daily with rubbing alcohol (using a cotton ball.) Immediately after rubbing the tattoo down, I would then use Cetaphil cream (small amount) so that tattoo wouldn’t dry out. This got rid of the problem for me. Good luck!

Wash your face, neck and hairline once or twice daily. Wash gently by rubbing your fingertips in a circular motion and rinse with lukewarm water.
Purchase over-the-counter acne medications. You may have to try several before you find the best one for your skin. They come in a wide range of prices, and more expensive is not always better.
Be careful when using all skin products. Apply only oil-free make-up, lotion and sunscreens. The ones that read “nonacnegenic” or “noncomedogenic” are best.
Keep hair products out of your face. Cover your face with a towel while applying hair gel, hairspray and mousse. While taking a shower, wash your face last to remove shampoo and conditioner that may have run down your face.
Keep sweat, germs and dirt off your face. Pull back long hair when it’s hot, and avoid wearing hats and sunglasses.
See a dermatologist if your acne is affecting your self-confidence. A doctor may prescribe a heavy-duty medication or take further preventative measures.
