What are some claims examples for tattoo shops?
For instance, if a customer slips and falls, they can sue you for personal injury damages and medical expenses. Tattoo shops can also accidentally hurt customers while performing tattoo services, or you may accidentally transmit infectious diseases due to not sanitising your equipment properly.
Staff suffering injuries/infectious disease: Staff injuries, or staff contracting Covid-19 infections. Given the close proximity that tattoo artists work with clients, the chance of Covid-19 infections cannot be ignored.
Under Singapore law, business owners are responsible for paying the medical expenses and lost wages of staff who are injured/sick due to work-related causes.
Property/equipment damage: Risks like fire, water damage, burglary, and vandalism.
For instance, a fire could break out and damage your tattoo studio. Burglaries could damage your storefront, and leave you missing equipment.
