When an individual gets tattooed, it means that he or she has ink injected under the outer layer of his or her skin. As such, the needle that is used to inject this ink often comes in contact with the individual's blood. Because of this, the needle has the potential to spread blood-borne pathogens.
Individuals who contract infections after being tattooed may be entitled to financial compensation for their recovery and related suffering.

The Risk of Infection
When a tattoo artist prepares to give an individual a tattoo, he or she must use sanitized machinery and a brand new needle. Failure to do so may increase the likelihood of spreading diseases such as:
- Skin infections
- Blood-borne pathogens
In most cases, these are incurable infections that require constant, expensive treatment and medication to keep under control. Individuals who contract diseases at tattoo parlors may be entitled to financial compensation to assist with their treatment and recovery.
Before pursuing legal action, individuals are advised to discuss the facts of their case with an experienced attorney.
Tattoo infections often lead to permanent diseases that may alter an individual's way of life. If you or your loved one caught an infection after getting tattooed, contact the Wausau personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 for a free consultation.
