The 2nd International Conference on Tattoo Safety at the Berlin Museum of Natural History brings together experts in the fields of toxicology, legislation and manufacturing. The major aim is to communicate the inevitable requirements for a comprehensive evaluation of risks associated with the injection of tattoo inks into human skin. The prevalence of the tattooed population in Europe rises continuously, and so does the diversity of used inks. The expected entry into force of the European harmonised restrictions of substances used in tattoo inks and permanent make-up (PMU) spreads a new light on consumer safety. While progress is made with regard to the identification of health risks associated with tattoos, many adverse conditions such as systemic sensitisation or toxicity of degradation products remain unresolved.

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
