It sounds like you're having a systemic reaction, I suggest oral steroids before and after treatment with antihistamines. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.

It is possible you are allergic to the tattoo dye. At this point, I would hold off on the laser until the hives resolve. There is nothing that can be done other than cutting out the tattoo, if all other reasons for the hives have been ruled out.
