Sarcoidosis is an idiopathic granulomatous disease with many cutaneous manifestations and a known predilection for scars and areas of previous trauma. We report the first case of systemic sarcoidosis presenting in only the black dye of a tattoo. The skin manifestations of sarcoidosis and the histologic differential diagnosis of granulomas are reviewed.
