Please read, fully understanding and and ackowledge the following and be certain you understand the implications of signing.
I, the named below hereby give my artist my full consent to tattoo me. I fully understand that these risks associated with being tattooed and the tattoo process. I fully understand that these risks, known and unknown, can lead to injury, including, but not limited to infection, scarring, difficulties in detecting melanoma and allergic reactions to tattoo pigment, latex gloves (nitrile gloves are used as and when possible), and, or soap. Having been informed of the potential risks associated with getting a tattoo, I still wish to proceed with the tattoo application and I freely accept and expressly assume all risks that may arise.
I waive and release to the fullest extent permitted by law, the tattooist recorded above from all liability whatsoever, for any and all claims or causes that I, my estate, heirs, executors or assigns may have for personal injury or otherwise, including any direct, and / or consequential damages which may arise from the application of my tattoo or the process involved, whether caused by the negligence or fault of the tattoo artist or otherwise.
The tattoo artist has given me the full opportunity to ask any, and all questions about the application of my tattoo, and all of my questions have been answered to my total satisfaction.
The tattoo artist has given me clear instructions on how to care for my tattoo during the healing process. I understand them and I will follow them. I acknowledge that it is possible that the tattoo can become infected, particularly if I do not follow the instructions given to me. If any touch-up work to the tattoo is needed due to my own negligence, I agree that the work will be done at my own expense. I fully understand and will follow the aftercare instructions which have been given to me.
I am not under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and I am voluntarily submitting to be tattooed by the studio artist without duress or coercion. I am present through my own free will and personal choice.
I do not have diabetes, epilepsy, haemophillia, a heart condition, nor do I take blood thinning medication. I do not have any other medical or skin condition that may interfere with the application or healing of the tattoo. I am not the recipient of an organ or bone marrow transplant or, if I am I have taken the prescribed preventative regimen of antibiotics that is required by my doctor in advance of any invasive procedure such as tattooing or piercing. I am not pregnant or nursing. I do not have a medical impairment that may affect my judgement in getting the tattoo. There are NO medical reasons to prevent my tattoo application.
Variations in colour and design may exist between the tattoo art I have selected and the actual tattoo when it is applied to my body. I also understand that over time, the colours and the clarity of my tattoo will fade due to unprotected exposure to the sun and the natural dispersion of pigment under the skin.
A tattoo is a permanent change to my appearance and can / may only be removed by laser or surgical means, which can be disfiguring and /or costly and which in all likelihood will not result in the restoration of my skin to its exact appearance before being tattooed
I release all rights to any photographs taken of me and the tattoo and give consent in advance to their reproduction in print or electronic form. (if you do not agree to this provision, please advise and remind the artist not to take any pictures of you and your completed tattoo)
I acknowledge that I have been given adequate opportunity to read and understand the document, that it was not presented to me at the last minute and I understand that I am signing a legal contract, waiving certain rights to recover against the tattoo artist.
I hereby declare that I am of legal age (18 years plus), and have been provided valid proof of age, and am competent to sign this agreement.
I have read this agreement, I understand it and agree to be bound by it.
I understand that every care will be taken to ensure the procedure is carried out in a hygienic way, which includes the use of disposable or pre-sterilised equipment.
