Tattoo Removal Compensation Claims

Tattoo Removal Compensation ClaimsWhen visiting a tattooist or a tattoo removal specialist, there’s an extensive list of regulations a professional should abide by. This includes things like ensuring equipment is sterile, work surfaces are smooth to aid cleaning and hiring the services of licensed waste contractors to dispose of used needles, gloves, swabs etc safely.

In the tattoo removal trade, there are no regulations as such which makes it difficult to know if you’re receiving treatment from a fully trained/ qualified professional which leaves people vulnerable to possible injury.

Many people decide to get tattoos for many different reasons, some to enhance their looks, some to pay tribute to a loved one(s) and some to cover body parts they feel less comfortable with. Before a tattooist begins to tattoo a person’s body, they’re obliged to carry out various checks to ensure that person is medically able to have a tattoo.

If these checks haven’t been performed correctly or to the correct standard, and you’ve suffered any kind of injury as a result, then you could be entitled to compensation.

What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is the process of getting rid of a tattoo from your body leaving you with clear, unmarked skin once the procedure is complete.

Many tattoo removals take place when a person is unhappy with their tattoo because they’ve grown to resent it or if the tattoo didn’t turn out the way they had hoped. Laser tattoo removal treatment can be very costly, involving high-powered laser beams which pass through the skin, breaking down the tattoo ink until it starts to disappear. This process is completed over several treatments.

An experienced, qualified and fully trained tattoo removal specialist should carry out any removal procedures, taking into consideration all safety measures and possible health risks.

Common Injuries as a Result of Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal treatments, if completed incorrectly, can cause injuries such as:

  • Infections
  • Scaring (as a result of infected tattoos)
  • Burns or blisters due to misuse of equipment
  • Scarring
