Traumatic tattoos result from accidental deposition of pigmented particles in the dermis. Battery-operated devices should be added to the list of situations in which traumatic tattoos may arise. In this case, an iron-containing tattoo was removed by Mohs' micrographic surgery with an acceptable cosmetic result.
