Tattoo Texture Question

Setting: Modern-equivalent.

Research Summary: Googling and Yahooing, mostly, using searches such as 'tattoo texture' and 'tattoo feel'; these continuously throw the feel of getting the tattoo, or offers advice on scarification, which is not what I'm trying for.

Desired information: What does a tattoo feel like once it's /healed/? Does the skin over the tattoo feel different from the skin around it, either to fingertips or the skin of the tattoo itself? Does the area ever feel tight or stretched when moving during normal activities? Is there any loss or gain of sensitivity to touch at the area itself? Location: Upper arm, if relevant.

Needed for of all things just a throwaway line in a throwaway story. Character in question is highly detail oriented. Tattoo age is five to ten years.

Edit: Edited for ... subject which .. I thought I had posted but didn't, and a tag.

Edit 2: Thank you very much for your help, everyone. :D
