  1. I get ingrown hairs that look just like that if I have to shave an area of arm / leg for a tattoo. I just keep the area moisturized and try not to scratch at it. They go away after ~2 weeks.

  2. Defo looks like an ingrown hair. Quite common in tattoos as the area is shaved prior to treatment. Just leave it, keep it clean and it’ll go away eventually. Worst case scenario it’ll eventually turn into a gross spot, pop, get dry and may at some point need a tiny touch up but nothing major

  3. Could also be a clogged pore. It’s somewhat common with all the wiping that happens over a freshly shaved area.

    A warm compress if it’s bothering you, other than that, let it heal and it’ll be fine.
