Please read the following information carefully and inform the tattoo artist if you have any doubts about your suitability to be tattooed.
Tattooing and the healing process can come with risks and potential complications, as explained to you. You will be given aftercare instructions to help you minimize the effects.
It is normal for tattooing to be accompanied by pain, redness and swelling. If these symptoms worsen during the healing process, it could be a sign of an infection and you should see a doctor.
Some complications may be related to your health situation. It is important for your safety that the tattoo artist is informed. Additional precautions may be required.

Tattoos are permanent and depending on the ink used, they may not be removed properly.
In case of doubt, treatment should be postponed and medical advice should be sought.
