Dangers of Tattoos

A 2006 survey by the Pew Research Center reported that 40% of people between the ages of 26 and 40 have at least one tattoo. While tattoo parlors are supposed to follow a set of strict sanitation and cleanliness guidelines to ensure the safety and well-being of their customers, some of these regulations can go overlooked.

If you or a loved one has suffered due to a negligent tattoo artist or parlor, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Tattoo Parlor Risks

Tattoo artists use a sewing machine-like tool with one or more needles to prick a customer’s skin and inject ink underneath it. If these tools are not properly sanitized, or if a tattoo parlor itself is not clean, customers may suffer from a variety of serious consequences. Unsanitary tattoo parlors or tools can result in:

  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
  • Allergic reactions
  • Infection
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Bloodborne illnesses

These side effects can occur even if one follows the after-care instructions given by the tattoo artist and many can lead to life-long illnesses and complications. Some may even lead to death if they are not caught or taken care of properly.
