Tattoo Removal Compensation Claims
When 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 such as tattoo scarring.

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 tattoo artist 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 in their tattoo parlour. Sometimes a tattooist can mess up your tattoo and you would want it removed asap. Some tattooists have even misspelt names of people, leading up to the tattoo removal process.
If these checks haven’t been performed correctly or to the correct standard, and you’ve suffered any kind of injury as a result (such as tattoo scarring), then you could be entitled to compensation if you have been tattoed incorrectly.
Removing a tattoo is the process of getting rid of a tattoo from your body leaving you with clear, unmarked skin once the procedure is complete. However, due to malpractice and negligence injuries can occur such as tattoo scarring. This can usually occur when you have been tattoed incorrectly and visited a novice tattoo removal ‘specialist’.
Many laser 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 but can lead to tattoo injury claims due to malpractice.
An experienced, qualified and a fully trained tattoo removal specialist should carry out any removal procedures, taking into consideration all safety measures and possible health risks.
Tattoo removal treatments, if completed incorrectly, can cause injuries such as:
- Scarring (as a result of infected tattoos)
- Burns or blisters due to misuse of equipment
- Emotional trauma
