UPDATE: White & Blue Lion Tattoo Ink Infection Class Action Filed in California

December 3, 2014 — A class action lawsuit has been filed in California by two people who developed severe tattoo infections after using bad ink from White & Blue Lion, Inc. Click here to read more.

Tattoo Ink Infections

Tattoo ink has caused several outbreaks of bacterial infection in the last few years. In July 2014, the FDA issued a recall for tattoo ink, needles, and kits manufactured by White & Blue Lion, Inc. and 8Decades.

The inks were linked to one infection. FDA testing discovered multiple types of bacteria. They also found that the ink was made from pigments that are not intended for injection into human skin.

The FDA is concerned that products from the same manufacturer, and similar products, continue to be sold online.

Before you get a tattoo, ask to see the bottle. Do not get the tattoo if the bottle is marked with a dragon logo, or if the bottle is missing a brand, manufacturer, and address where the manufacturer can be contacted. Your artist should be aware of the origin of the ink and should be able to contact the manufacturer if an adverse event occurs.

Tattoo ink infection symptoms may include:

  • Painful skin rash
  • Raised bumps on the skin
  • Welts or hives
  • Hard nodules or granulomas
  • Blisters
  • Excessive pain or itching
  • And more

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a tattoo infection class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of men who had severe infections that needed medical treatment.

Many people have developed infections in outbreaks linked to bad ink, and some have filed lawsuits against the ink manufacturers. However, these cases are not part of a class action — they are individual lawsuits filed by people who hired an attorney to represent their legal and financial interests.

About Class Actions

Class actions are ideal when a large group of people has the same type of legal claim — for example, reimbursement for purchasing a truck based on false advertisements about its MPG. Members of the class action join together, choose a “class representative,” and lawyers use that person’s case to argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Tattoo Infection Class Action

The problem with class actions is that members may have to accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement. Because class actions are decided by a representative case, most people in the litigation never get to see their individual case brought before a judge and jury.

Our trial attorneys specialize in helping victims of defective products seek justice for their injuries. We file individual lawsuits because we believe personal legal representation is the best way we can maximize each client’s recovery. We typically work on contingency-fee, which means you pay nothing unless we win.
