Have you ever suffered a personal injury or side effects after having a tattoo? Claims National can provide you with free help and advice in relation to making a claim for your negligent tattoo procedure.
While increasingly popular, having a tattoo doesn’t always have the results you thought it would do. If not performed safely, the dye used can cause permanent skin damage, allergic reactions or even infection from the needles used.
If you have been a victim of someone else’s professional negligence then we may be able to help you with a claim for compensation.
Tattoos are considered as a serious procedure, especially as the outcome of a tattoo is permanent. Therefore, your tattoo artist should advise you to think long and hard about your decision, before deciding on a tattoo procedure. Tattoos can also be very expensive, and therefore as a client, you would expect to be treated with a high standard of care and professionalism.
The requirements of a tattoo artist are as follows:
- Your tattoo artist should go through a medical questionnaire with you prior to completing your tattoo procedure.
- A health and safety certificate should be in sight
- Giving you the appropriate after care advice
- Asking you about any allergies that you may have and any health care problems that could affect the procedure
- A new sterile needle is used on each client
- Their hands are washed thoroughly and disposable latex gloves are worn
