About 7 or 8 days ago, I started to get a bad itch on my leg. I have a tattoo there, so I could not see if it was turning red or not, as its all black ink in that area. The itch lasted a few days. I just thought it was a spider bite or mosquito bite. To be honest, I don't even know if this is insect related. Then today, I noticed there is a bubble popping up right where that itch was. Its about the size of a dime and sticks out 1 cm or so. What should I do? Should I pop it? Why would it itch so badly at the start, then turn into this?
