Tattoo Health Hazards

Posted on June 4th, 2009 No Comments

Tattoos have been a significant part of many world cultures, along with playing a role in numerous subcultures in the United States. Despite the fact that tattoos are becoming more and more popular in mainstream culture, people are, for the most part, unaware of the various health risks that can be posed if a tattooing procedure is not performed properly.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of a poorly performed tattoo procedure, contact Cincinnati tattoo injury attorney Shawn M. Stepleton at 513-321-7733.

Tattoo Risks

There are numerous issues that can arise when getting a tattoo. The majority of them can be avoided by proper safety and sanitary procedures. Some of the risks include:

Skin infections, such as staph can occur, especially if a tattoo needle is not properly sanitized. Furthermore, complications such as keloids (scar tissue) and granulomas (raised red bumps) may occur as the body’s natural reaction.
Allergic reactions can result from the body attempting to reject the ink, and may even happen months or years after receiving a tattoo.
The ink in the tattoo may interfere with an MRI exam, often causing swelling or even burning as the ink reacts with the magnetic fields from the MRI.

If any of these injuries have been suffered as a result of an incompetently performed tattoo procedure, you may be entitled to compensation. If you or a loved one has suffered one of these types of injuries, contact Cincinnati tattoo injury attorney Shawn M. Stepleton at 513-321-7733.
