Why do permanent makeup artists need business insurance?

Cosmetic tattooing leaves a permanent mark, which makes insurance essential. If a scalp micropigmentation changes color over time, or a pigment causes an adverse reaction, the result could be a lawsuit. Permanent makeup insurance can protect against legal fees, medical bills, and other expenses.
