The standard of care required of a tattoo artist is that of a reasonably competent tattoo artist. In Phillips v Whitely [1938] 1 All ER 566, it was established that professionals are judged by the standards of their own profession, not by those of other professions. In this case, a jeweller who pierced an ear was judged against the standard of a reasonably competent jeweller, not a surgeon. Similarly, Tom, the tattoo artist, is required to meet the standard of care of a reasonably competent tattoo artist, not a medical professional. He must act in a manner consistent with what is expected from someone skilled in his particular field. 

Key Point: The standard of care in professional negligence is determined by what is expected of a reasonably competent practitioner in the specific field, ensuring that individuals are judged by relevant and appropriate standards.
