Swollen Lymph Nodes After Tattoo?

Update: I got a medium sized tattoo on my right butt/thigh area about a week ago. Ever since then, I have noticed that the lymph nodes in my right groin are enlarged and tender. I have a few other tattoos, and have never had this reaction. As for the tattoo itself, it is healing as normal. No pus, no redness, no swelling.... show more I got a medium sized tattoo on my right butt/thigh area about a week ago.

Was wondering if anyone has seen this or experienced this before, and if it goes away, or if I should consider seeing a doctor.

Thank you in advance!
