Tattoo claims often result from people not being asked the proper questions before committing to the ink.
If you are looking to get your first tattoo make sure that your tattooist has asked you the following:
The large majority of people who get tattoos are happy with the results, but sometimes, due to the negligence of the tattoo artist or tattoo parlour, the needle, as well as other things, can cause infection and result in that person needing a solicitor.
As well as the environment in which the tattooing is taking place, sources of potential infection could stem from un-sterilised needles, old ink pots, the tattooist’s bare hands (gloves should always be used), and the clients own skin, which should be cleaned before the tattooist begins.
Signs of infection after getting a tattoo are clear; redness and irritation from your tattoo should fade relatively soon after your visit to a tattoo artist. However, if your tattoo shows no signs of healing, it is a probable sign of infection. The same can be said for pain and swelling. If any of these symptoms do not clear up, then a doctor should be consulted immediately.
Other signs of infection include:

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.
Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case. I was kept updated regularly on all aspects and developments and given sound advice regarding my claim. I particularly liked using the App on my mobile which was full of useful information. Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.
