I had an MRI today of my chest because of compressed nerves under my left collar bone and my chest piece has been itching HORRIBLY since then. Has this ever happened to anyone? I know ink can contain metallic dye (I think) and MRI works by using magnetic fields or something like that ..it kinda freaks me out.

Did they put anything on your chest? I’ve never gotten an MRI so I don’t know what they do to prep you.
Hope you’re ok. 🙂

How long have you had your chest tattoo? Tattoo ink is no longer made with metal…and hasn’t been for sometime now. So i’ve heard. It still wouldn’t hurt for you to call your doctor just to make sure and to put your mind at rest.

I’ve had part of it for 3 and a half years and the other part for 2 and a half years. I wonder why it itches so bad? it almost feels like a sunburn but its getting better.
