Tattoos are body modifications to people’s skin made through the insertion of ink into the skin to alter pigmentation. They can be for symbolic, cultural or purely decorative reasons. Tattooing has grown significantly as a trade in Australia since the twentieth century and has become increasingly regulated, mostly due to the risk of infection if not performed properly. In NSW for example, the Department of Health oversees proper tattooing practices under the Public Health Regulation 2012 and Tattoo Parlour Act 2012.

The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:

- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
