Laser Tattoo Removal Insurance

What are Laser Tattoo Removal treatments?

Laser tattoo removal is a method used to eliminate permanent unwanted tattoo ink from the skin. The process typically involves multiple laser therapy sessions, depending on the size of the tattoo and the colours used. Laser tattoo removal works by breaking down the tattoo ink into smaller fragments, which are then absorbed into the bloodstream and safely eliminated from the body. The duration of tattoo removal varies depending on factors such as the colours used, the tattoo size, and its location on the body.

Over time, permanent tattoos may become distorted as the skin ages, causing them to lose their original appearance or become unwanted. Individuals with tattoos now have options to address this issue: they can either consult a tattoo artist to modify the tattoo, or seek the services of a laser tattoo clinic or dermatologist for permanent removal of the tattoo ink using laser technology.

Why do you need insurance for laser tattoo removal treatments?

With over a quarter of UK adults estimated to have tattoos, there has been an increased demand for laser tattoo removal in the past few years, emphasising the importance of having appropriate insurance cover to protect you from possible claims and legal fees. Laser tattoo removal carries the risk of potential skin damage, including burns, scars, blisters, and other complications. These adverse outcomes may give rise to claims of negligence.

What insurance cover do you need for laser tattoo removal treatments?

Public Liability Insurance – This can provide cover for any harm or injuries suffered by customers while present on your business premises, typically arising from slip and fall incidents. Here at Barry Fenton, we can arrange cover for most business types, including tattoo businesses, that permit customer access to their premises.

Professional Liability Insurance – This is essential for tattoo removal procedures, as they need to be conducted meticulously over multiple sessions by well-trained artists. This cover can help to safeguard against potential claims in cases where a customer is severely injured or receives substandard work. Given the permanent nature of tattoos, lawsuits can be expected.

Other insurance you may need to consider includes:

  • Property Insurance –  for your clinic, tattoo studio, or beauty salon.

  • Business Interruption Insurance
  • Employers’ Liability Insurance
