Having Nova Art Tattoo put a tattoo is at your own risk at all times, both in the case of an oral and written agreement.


Don’t have a tattoo put:

  • in places where you have undergone plastic surgery or radiation in the past year;
  • on a scar that is less than a year old;
  • in a place that was tattooed less than six weeks ago;
  • in a place where a tattoo was lasered away less than three months ago;
  • on irritated skin such as bumps, dark moles or swellings;
  • if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • if you are allergic to tattoo materials or ink.

In addition, it is not recommended to have a tattoo put on if one of the following situations applies to you:

  • diabetes
  • blood clotting problems
  • chronic skin disease
  • reduced immunity
  • cardiovascular abnormalities
  • pregnancy or lactation


  • Make sure your hemoglobin A1c level and the overall blood glucose level of your blood are under control before you get tattooed. This reduces the chance that you will get a wound infection or inflammation during and after tattooing. To be sure of the right amount, you can puncture the best just before tattooing.
  • In general: first discuss your plans for putting a tattoo with your treating physician.


  • If you have a blood clotting disease or use anticoagulants, your skin may bleed faster and bleed longer than with other people during tattooing. Large tattoos are not recommended to minimize the risk of major bleeding. If you still want a large tattoo, preferably have it put in several times.
  • In general: first discuss your plans for putting a tattoo with your treating physician. Your doctor can best judge the status of your blood values.


  • In the case of a chronic skin disease (such as psoriasis or sarcoidosis in the skin), there is a chance that you will also develop your skin complaints in the place that you have tattooed. This is called the Koebner phenomenon. To reduce the chance of this, it is not recommended to have a tattoo applied at times when your skin disease is very active. And preferably do not have a tattoo put on places where your skin disease often occurs.
  • If you have ever had melanomas (skin cancer), or if this occurs in your family, it is recommended that you do not have a tattoo. On the tattooed skin, new melanomas are more difficult to detect at an early stage.
  • In general: first discuss your plans for putting a tattoo with your treating physician.


  • Even if work is carried out safely and hygienically, you run a risk of infection when you apply a tattoo. If you have an immune disorder (this includes leukemia) or you use medication that can weaken the immune system, this risk is increased. Always discuss your plans for putting a tattoo with your treating doctor first.


  • If you have a cardiovascular disease, there is a risk that you will end up with endocarditis (an infection on the inner wall of the heart). Because of this risk, it is not recommended to have a tattoo put on if you do not have your heart disease optimally under control.
  • In general: always discuss your plans for putting a tattoo with your treating doctor first.


  • Do not take a tattoo if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Not all risks associated with tattooing for pregnant women are known. In addition, if you get an infection as a result of the tattoo, you are not allowed to use certain medicines to combat the infection, because of the risk for your (unborn) child.
  • The aftercare treatment is given at the end of your tattoo.
  • The tattoo is settled on the day itself.
