Each body is different and your healing time may be longer or shorter than your friends. The healthier your lifestyle, the easier it will be for your piercing or Tattoo to heal.

I acknowledge that by signing this agreement I have been given the full opportunity to ask any and all questions which I may have about the obtaining of a tattoo and that all of my questions have been answered to my full satisfaction.

I acknowledge that I am of legal age (18 years or older), or have parental consent to be legally bound by this consent form. I confirm that I have requested this tattoo of my own free will.

I consent to the application of the tattoo and to any actions or conduct of the representatives and employees of the tattoo shop reasonably necessary to perform the tattoo procedure.

I specifically acknowledge I have been advised of the facts and matters set forth below and I agree as follows:

  • I am not suffering of condition or illness that might affect the act of tattooing or the healing of this tattoo such as but not limited to : Any heart or seizures e.g. epilepsy, Haemophilia (a congenital tendency to uncontrolled bleeding; usually affects males and is transmitted from mother to son), Immune compromising conditions (Hepatitis, HIV, etc.), High blood pressure, Diabetes, Allergic responses to adhesive plasters, creams metal, latex, lanolin or wheat germ, Excessive bleeding/bruise easily.
  • I do not have any other condition or illness that might affect the act of tattooing or the healing of this tattoo, otherwise I will advise my tattoo artist.
  • I do not have medical or skin conditions such as (but not limited to) : acne, scarring (Keloid) eczema, psoriasis, freckles, moles or sunburn in the area to be tattooed that may interfere with said tattoo. If I have any type of infection or rash anywhere on my body, I will advise my tattoo artist.
  • I am not pregnant or nursing (any invasive procedure normally involves a small risk of infection, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding this might adversely affect your baby therefore we will not tattoo pregnant or nursing mothers)
  • I haven’t taken any recreation drugs and/or alcohol in the last 24 hours (we will not tattoo anyone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.)
  • I am not taking immunosuppressant medication or have taken blood thinning medication e.g. aspirin, warfarin etc or large doses of caffeine, in the last 24 hours
  • I slept well in the last 24 hours (it is preferable for you to be well rested before your new tattoo)

I acknowledge it is not reasonably possible for the representatives and employees of this tattoo shop to determine whether I might have an allergic reaction to the pigments or processes used in my tattoo, and I agree to accept the risk that such a reaction is possible.

I acknowledge that infection is always possible as a result of the obtaining of a tattoo, particularly in the event that I do not take proper care of my tattoo. I have received aftercare instructions and I agree to follow them while my tattoo is healing. I agree that any touch-up work needed, due to my own negligence, will be done at my own expense.

I understand that if I have any skin treatments, laser hair removal, plastic surgery or other skin altering procedures, it may result in adverse changes to my tattoo.

I realize that variations in color and design may exist between any tattoo selected by me and ultimately applied to my body. I understand that if my skin color is dark, the colors will not appear as bright as they do on light skin.

I acknowledge that a tattoo is a permanent change to my appearance and that no representations have been made to me as to the ability to later change or remove my tattoo. To my knowledge, I do not have a physical, mental or medical impairment or disability that might affect my well-being as a direct or indirect result of my decision to have a tattoo.

I fully understand that Hand, head, neck and foot tattoos are extremely difficult to maintain and I might need a touch up every 3 weeks or 3 months in order to keep the initial quality of the tattoo. I understand that even with the best quality of ink and high level of artist the tattoo may be fade away even after 2 week in a normal healing process.

I have discussed the contra-indications with an agent of Black Hat Tattoo. I understand the possible effects and not withstanding wish to proceed with having a tattoo applied.

I confirm by my signature overleaf that I have read this consent form, that I understand it and that all statements in it are true. I confirm that I am not under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that I consider myself to be healthy enough to undergo the tattooing procedure. I authorize an agent of Black Hat Tattoo a pre-determined design on my body, to which I have given adequate fore-thought as to type and placement. Furthermore, I understand that this process is irreversible, whereby indelible inks are injected under the skin. I confirm that I have been given the aftercare procedure in writing, that it has been fully and clearly explained to me and that I understand it.

I also understand that no form of anesthetic will be used in this procedure. I confirm that I am not taking any other medication or suffering from any other illness, condition or allergy which a reasonable person should be aware of, which may cause me to react adversely to, or be aggravated by tattooing. I understand that a new tattoo is susceptible to an infection until healed and that proper aftercare of the tattoo, once I leave the studio, is fully my responsibility. I understand that notwithstanding the hygienic conditions, sterile instruments and techniques used by this tattooing Establishment, there are associated risks with tattooing which include infection, scarring, allergy reactions, localized swelling, fall out and fading. In giving this consent I release this tattooing establishment and its employees from all liabilities, actions and demands which I may have now or in the future for any loss or damage suffered howsoever caused as result of my tattoo (e.g. as a result of a fraudulent miss-statement by me, or in respect of personal injury caused by myself, negligence and or failure on my part to follow the aftercare procedures).
