Hi guys, I need the collective wisdom again.

A friend recently had a homemade tattoo done for ??? whatever reason. Anyway, it's sprung up a rash that looks like pimples, but aren't. Is he allergic or is this an infection or what? I can't post a pic.

Ok my response was based on a professional tattoo... let me totally rethink my allergic reaction to ink comment. You're friend is a moron and probably has an infection from a non-sterile needle or bad ink. Hit a walk in clinic and get some meds. If he feels to stupid to explain what he did. well i guess you really only need one arm huh.

No time to answer whether said friend is beyond stupid. It looks like flat scabs, any more suggestions.

It's a case of Mulletitis Syndrome.
Very common in some areas.

Duh! That's what happens after you get a tattoo. You have to keep it covered in neosporin until it heals.

are the bumps weeping, and is there swelling in the area?

when he presses on the area, does it feel "wooden"?
