Getting a tattoo is a big commitment. When you decide to get one, you expect the tattoo artist to apply it correctly following strict health and safety standards. If not, you may be left with an unsatisfactory tattoo, or even an injury.
Before starting a new tattoo, the tattoo artist should ask you questions about your medical history and check for any skin reactions. They must also use properly sterilised equipment for each tattoo, to prevent the risk of infection.
Injuries can also happen from tattoo removal treatments. This usually happens because the professional hasn’t been trained properly or the equipment was used incorrectly.
Our expert solicitors have experience making tattoo compensation claims for the following:
Poorly applied tattoos or wrong artwork
Allergic reactions from tattoos
Infections from non-sterilised tattoo equipment
Scarring, burns, blisters or hyper-pigmentation from tattoo removal treatments
It’s also worth mentioning that in the UK it’s illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 even with parental consent. If a tattoo artist tattoos an underage person, they are responsible not the person getting the tattoo.
How Much Compensation Can I Get?
This depends on the injuries and financial losses you’ve suffered because of the tattoo artist’s negligence. If you’ve had the tattoo corrected or removed elsewhere, we could help you claim back these costs.
