Tattoo and Tattoo Removal Compensation Claims
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.
Specialists in Tattoo and Tattoo Removal Claims
Should you suffer as a result of negligence by a tattooist or a tattoo removal therapist, we may also obtain evidence from a Plastic Surgeon, a Dermatologist (skin expert) or Laser Dermatologist to prove the damage has been caused by them, and to provide recommendations in terms of any future treatment which may be of benefit, and/or to predict how long it will take for your skin to return to normal (if at all).

Making a Tattoo and Tattoo Removal Claim
There’s absolutely no risk involved in inquiring about your position, or your claim, so it pays to speak with an expert. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages as a contribution to costs.
There is a time limit to make a claim, however, so it’s best to act as quickly as possible. Normally you have three years from the date of your treatment or from the date you realised your condition was a result of your treatment. If you were under the age of 18 when you received the treatment, you’ll have three years from your 18th birthday to make a claim.
