Health Safety: Tattooing | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

A recent  article posted on WebMD noted the increased popularity of tattooing among younger individuals. Given this increase, it becomes important to have a clear understanding of the procedure and the risks involved. When thinking about getting a tattoo, here are a few things to consider:

  • Choose a facility carefully.  Make sure the establishment is licensed in tattooing.
  • Keep your tattoo simple. Smaller tattoos are easier to remove should you desire to do so.
  • Insist that you view the tattoo artist remove sterile instruments from the envelope.
  • Make sure that the tattoo is placed in an appropriate location on your body. If you should decide to have a tattoo removed a scar could be visible.
  • If you experience a great deal of redness or soreness, contact a physician immediately.

For more information about safety issues regarding tattoos, please visit the Mayo Clinic website.
