Abstract: The art of tattooing has increasing in recent decades. Allergic sensitivity to one of the pigments is the most frequent cause of dermatological reactions at the site of the tatoo. Gold is a new pigment used in tatooing, because of its bright yellow color and luster. Allergy to this metal is uncommon. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of allergic contact dermatitis to gold in a tattoo. Copyright © by BIOLIFE, s.a.s.
