Public Liability Insurance is not actually a requirement working as a tattoo artist or body piercer in the UK. However, your local licencing authority may insist on this before they will issue your licence. We could never advise working without this cover as this is what protects you should an accident happen, for example any damage occurring as a result of the work you are carrying out.
The further extensions that are given in a bespoke Inksurance policy will protect you from likely incidents that could occur that are most relevant to your trade, for example ‘injury to the customer that you are working on’.
Public Liability Insurance covers you or your Company for the cost of claims made by a client or member of the public in relation to injury or property damage for incidents that occur in connection with your business.
If you have any further questions about Public Liability cover, or you would like to make sure you have the adequate cover in place, please get in contact with us.
