Tattoos personal injury compensation

Tattoo compensation claims

If you unfortunate enough to have suffered a tattoo injury or a personal injury in the tattoo studio either from a poor tattoo, tattoo mistakes, an allergic reaction, an infected tattoo, complications during laser tattoo removal, issues with tattoo ink, or tattoo negligence in general, you may be entitled to tattoo compensation claims.

Tattoo injuries needing medical treatment, often leading to tattoo infections, are frequent in the tattoo industry.

Tattoo procedure involves the placement of pigment onto the skin’s dermis, the layer of dermal tissue underlying the epidermis. After initial injection, pigment is dispersed throughout a homogenised damaged layer down through the epidermis and upper dermis, in both of which a presence of foreign material activates the immune system’s phagocytes to engulf the pigment particles.

PR Scully injury solicitors are personal injury compensation claim lawyers who operate under a no win no fee basis. It’s vital to use specialist personal injury solicitors when you claim tattoo injury compensation.

The Risks of Tattooing

The most common method of tattooing in modern times is the electric tattoo machine, which inserts ink into the skin via a single needle or a group of needles that are soldered onto a bar, which is attached to an oscillating unit. The unit rapidly and repeatedly drives the needles in and out of the skin, usually 80 to 150 times a second.

This modern procedure is ordinarily sanitary. The needles are single-use needles that come packaged individually. The tattoo artist must wash his or her hands and must also wash the area that will be tattooed. Disposable latex gloves must be worn at all times and the wound must be wiped frequently with a wet disposable towel of some kind. The equipment must be sterilized in a certified autoclave before and after every use.

The possible Risks of receiving a tattoo in an unsanitary environment

  • Allergic Reactions
  • General Infection
  • Hepititis
  • Herpes Simplex Virus
  • HIV
  • Tetanus
  • Tuberculosis
  • Bruising

If the administering of your tattoo caused you serious bruising, that meant you had to seek medical attention, you might be eligible for a tattoo negligence claim.
