So I got a tattoo a little above my ankle four days ago. Since then I have been extreme pain. Barely able to walk. The tattoo itself is not swollen anymore but below it is. The tattoo is not infected. I did look it up online but did not find any answers. Has anyone experienced this and if so, any advice on what I should do to bring down the swelling? I have elevated my leg and tried ice packs but received no relief.

Congrats that the swelling is gone now! Will you be getting more? I do hope you don't overdo it, though!1
You should see a doctor, don't go and ask the tattoo artist who has no medical training, that's stupid advice.1

It's normal, just give it a week or so.1
