Harlem tattoo shop featured in VH1 show sued after woman suffers infection

Recommended Posts

I didn't think much of the article when I saw "tattoo gun" but holy balls, did anyone look at the picture of the infection!??! That is some legit TERRIBLE thing to happen someone! Wow. I've always wondered what an infected tattoo would look like - there's always that paranoia when healing large swaths of skin - and now I can for sure say none of mine have ever been anything close to infected.

The picture of her infected tattoo (you gotta scroll down to see it) should be on a sticky somewhere to show what happens if you go to a place with shoddy sterilization procedures.

I'm skeptical. I have all of Zero experience with tattoo infections, but plenty of experience with infections... Not knowing when that pic was taken, what she was taking etc etc...it looks more like an ink reaction? some type of hypersensitivity reaction?. Bacterial infection...not so sure. No redness, no swelling.... But, who knows, maybe that pic is after 3 days of antibiotics and anti inflammatories.

I talk to my artist about this article and they also find it some what skeptical but that they do not get it pass that shop to be true. Apparently that shop is famous for been shitty. And for them to be sued 3 times before for similar shit?!? No bueno.

    • So in the end, they emailed me saying they have to reschedule and they needed to be with family. I asked for my deposit back and they said it was no problem and to just call the shop and ask for it. I think your right atomicmagpye, the tattoo gods are telling me something lol. Luckily I got in with another artist, I was planning to go to anyways, on friday to get the same subject in a different style.
    • See video for what happens when someone tattoos you in an RV - or in this case a car. It's the acceleration, corners and braking that usually cause the issues. It may be possible on a long stretch of highway - but still not usually recommended. skip to 35 seconds in for the educational bit.
