Is my mole something to worry about? (Photo)

I have a mole on my back that use to be alot smaller and dark brown. Over the past few years it has been growing and becoming painful sometimes paiful to the slightest touch. I felt a sharp pain this morning and looked at my back to find it has grown over my tattoo and is flesh colored.

From the photo, it's impossible to help you very much, however, the fact that the mole is painful suggests that you should have a dermatologist examine you in person.  I am sure there are good ones in your area.
