Tattoo And Tattoo Removal Negligence

When visiting a tattooist or tattoo removal specialist, you should always expect to receive professional treatment and care from the specialist providing your treatment.

Tattooists are required to meet particular regulations to ensure that the equipment they use is sterile and that all work surfaces such as floors, tables, couches, etc. are smooth and impervious to aid cleaning. They are also required to engage the services of a licensed waste contractor to ensure that any swabs, gloves, etc. which may be contaminated with blood are correctly disposed of.

There are no regulations, however, in respect of tattoo removal treatment so you cannot always be sure of receiving professional treatment by fully trained people, and things can go wrong. If they do, we can help get you the compensation you deserve.

Some examples of tattooist and tattoo removal therapist negligence include:

  • Infections
  • Scarring resulting from infected tattoos
  • Burns or blisters to the skin resulting from tattoo removal treatment
  • Scarring resulting from removal treatment
