This study reports a sample review of legal reports for “professional damage” made on the adverse consequences of incorrect aesthetic tattooing, including the clarity of laws governing the limits of non-professional persons who carry out this practice. Firstly the legal coverage of this question is discussed on a practice that should be carried out by specifically qualified persons. It discusses the lack of precise boundaries and definitions of the terms “damage- lesion and disease” and emphasizes the need for a specialist opinion, in the form of a qualified plastic surgeon, to quantify any “so-called damage”, due to what should be a corrective aesthetic medical tattooing.
