Are there risks in getting tattooed?

Applying a tattoo comes with risks and demands a lot from a human body. Make sure you’re well-rested and ate enough on the day of the tattoo-appointment. It’s wise to bring food, drinks and snacks with you. Notify your tattooer about circumstances like fatigue, sickness, medicine use, skin problems, allergies, epilepsy and hypersensitivity reactions. When unsure about your health risks when it comes to tattooing, (medical) advice should be obtained.

 

You can see whether a tattoo-shop has a tattoo-license, via the website www.veiligtatoeerenenpiercen.nl. This would mean that work is done in accordance with the requirements of the European standard for tattooing, called NEN-EN 17169 and the explanation of the standard.

 

Tattoos are permanent and there is a chance that they cannot be removed properly. When in doubt, talk to your tattooer and don't hesitate to postpone an appointment. It's good to carefully find out what style and which artist you like best for your tattoo idea.
