Can I sue if I have a half finished tattoo that the tattoo artist is refusing to finish?
Question Details: He is stating that I missed appointments and he gave my appointment cards. This was my chance to finish the work. I never got reminder cards and the desk clerk said she would call before appointments so I didn't need the cards. No one ever called me about appointments. When I made my appointments originally I was with another person. She received cards from the desk girl for her appointments. She went to her appointments 2 separate times and 1 time he didn't show up and she waited for nothing. Another time she showed up and he said all of hers and my appointments were cancelled. Now I have a half finished tattoo that I need to find a comparable artist who can re-do/finish it. It is a high quality tattoo not just anyone can take the task.
Yes, you can sue him based on both breach of contract (violating the agreement, whether written or oral, under which he agreed to tatoo you in exchange for you paying him) and also based in tort (unreasonable, unprofessional carelessness and/or an intentionally wrongful act, causing you some loss [e.g. cost to find somene else to finish] or life distress [e.g. mental pain and suffering due to an intentional refusal to complete the work).
