If you have any of the contraindications listed above and you are still determined to have this procedure. I (Megan) have the right to deny service if I feel the procedure will potentially cause more harm than good, if I feel that I am not the right artist for you, or if you are not a good candidate for the procedure. Deposits are non-refundable. I can provide you with a medical form to take to your doctor to get approval/any recommendations before proceeding. However, we do inform you beforehand all the risk associated with these contraindications and the procedure together, so that you know all the risk included. And still may in the end after the medical form, still refuse service.
