As a tattoo artist you work in an environment where there is a high risk factor. Tattooing equipment is expensive and are ultimately the tools of your trade, so if stolen or damaged, you run the risk of losing out financially. When it comes to tattooing members of the public there is always a risk of complaints due to infections that are out of your control. Having a detailed
Tattoo Shop Insurance policy is the best way to ensure that you are protected against potential damage to your assets, or potential claims against your work.
Tattoo Studio Insurance from Mercury Insurance Brokers
Our team of insurance experts at Mercury Insurance understand the importance of your equipment and your reputation as a tattoo artist. This is why we can create a bespoke tattoo artist insurance policy that will fit your specific requirements. Whether you own a tattoo studio and require contents insurance and tattoo liability insurance, or require treatment risk insurance for all the tattoo artists who work in your studio – we can provide you with the policy your business requires.
Additional options for a Tattoo Shop Insurance Policy
When building your policy we take into account exactly what you require. There’s no need to pay for a policy that does not completely apply to your business. Your policy can be as basic or as detailed as required, and may include the following options:
Tattoo liability insurance and treatment risk insurance – A clean studio environment and sterilisation of equipment is of utmost importance to tattoo artists, as is the welfare of customers. If however, you ever face a claim made against you due to the health of a customer, you may need to defend yourself at quite a cost. Legal costs can mount up, but with tattoo liability insurance you will be protected when a claim is made against you, so that potential costs will not interfere with your business.
Shop contents insurance – Your shop fixtures and furniture, as well as tattoo equipment is invaluable to the success of your business. We recognise the need to protect it to ensure that you don’t incur any losses as a result of theft or damage due to unforeseen circumstances. Protect your tattooing equipment with shop contents insurance from Mercury Insurance Brokers.
Laser tattoo removal insurance – Tattoo removal is a high risk treatment that may not be covered by a basic tattoo shop insurance policy. Our team of experts can add this into your policy if you offer tattoo removal at your shop, so that you are protected against any claims made against you by your customers.
Body piercing insurance – If you also offer body piercing to your customers we can extend your policy to include liability cover. This again ensures that you are covered if any customers attempt to make a claim of negligence against you.
Semi-permanent make-up insurance – If you offer semi-permanent make-up services in your shop you may require specific insurance to protect you against claims of negligence. All employees carrying out semi-permanent make-up services in your shop should be certified for the job in order to get insured.
Guest artist and convention insurance – If you are a tattoo artist who frequently travels and works at several studios, or will be attending conventions regularly, the team at Mercury Insurance can ensure that you are protected against any potential risks whilst working in different studios or conventions nationwide.
