FAQ About Tattoo Shop Liability Insurance

Does tattoo liability insurance cover ink allergies or infections caused to clients?

Professional liability insurance generally covers medical treatments and legal defense costs if a client suffers an allergic reaction or infection allegedly due to the tattoo service provided. Make sure you specify what you want covered on your insurance policy.

Are tattoo artists who rent booth space covered by the shop's insurance?

Yes, the shop’s insurance policy can cover tattoo artists who rent booth space so long as it is scheduled. XINSURANCE can also provide insurance solutions for individuals or contractors who aren’t insured by a shop but need coverage for a booth, like at a convention. This inclusion depends on the policy’s specific terms and conditions. It’s essential for both shop owners and independent artists to clearly understand and agree upon how coverage is extended to those renting booth space. Shop owners should verify with XINSURANCE to ensure their policy is designed to cover all working artists, including those renting space.

Can I get insurance if I’m a mobile tattoo artist or do temporary work at conventions?

Yes, we can provide insurance solutions for mobile tattoo artists or those who work at conventions. Our solutions account for the unique risks associated with non-permanent work locations.

Why is liability insurance important for tattoo shops?

Liability insurance is crucial for tattoo shops because it can cover legal costs and potential settlements arising from lawsuits, which can be financially debilitating for a business. It safeguards the business operations, ensuring financial stability against claims of damage, injury, and other liabilities.

You need tattoo shop insurance to help protect you when things go wrong. In life, you will learn how good your insurance partner is when what can happen does happen. XINSURANCE stands by your side when an accident, incident, claim, or lawsuit occurs. Having liability insurance can protect you from significant financial loss and sometimes can be the difference between staying in business or closing your doors. In some places, liability insurance may be required.

Can I be insured if I've been dropped or rejected by an insurance company?

Yes, XINSURANCE can help you even if you’ve been declined, canceled, or non-renewed by an insurance company. We step in to provide an insurance solution when others can’t or won’t.

How much does tattoo shop insurance cost?

The cost of tattoo shop insurance varies depending on several factors such as the size of the shop, number of employees, types of services offered, and the specific risks insured. As an individual tattoo artist or contractor, your cost may also depend on your years of experience, claims history, location, number of clients, etc.
