Hi- I am an artist and tattooist and would like to insure my hands
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am concerned that the tattoo machines I use will eventually result in damage to my nr=erve endings, causing 'white finger disease' (loss of feeling)
Expert:  Jenny replied 1 year ago.
ok i understand. Have you taken any steps now to look for insurance cover? Are you self employed?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have not taken any steps- I am not sure which companies to approach and yes I am self employed.
Expert:  Jenny replied 1 year ago.
The first step you can take is to contact the Association of British Insurance Brokers. https://www.biba.org.uk/This is an independent organisation who can advise you which companies provide the kind of insurance you are looking for. If you work on other peoples premises or are involved with Tatooing you need to have public liabiltiy insurance cover as well as cover to damage to yourself otherwise you might find yourself with a claim if someone suffers an injury due to your work. If you have any further questions please do ask.

I have full insurance cover, am fully licenced and run a training school as well. I suppose it would make sense to see what my own insurance covers me for- I assumed it was just to protect the people I tattoo!
Expert:  Jenny replied 1 year ago.
It might be that you are already covered under your existing insurance policy. The insurer should be able to tell you. This is likely to be the case if an accident causes damage as opposed to normal wear and tear. If you do not have adequate cover for your needs then the association of insurance brokers is the best option to get the cover you require.

Hello Sheila is there anything further you would like to know?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, thank you- I will ring my insurance company and find out. I feel like a bit of an idiot not checking that before but I am pretty sure I am not covered for wear and tear on myself. I will then go onto the company you recommend if necessary, thank you.
