2nd International Conference on Tattoo Safety

The 2nd International Conference on Tattoo Safety will take place at the Berlin Museum of Natural History on 18 – 19 November 2021 and will be broadcast via livestream.It will be organised in frame of the larger BfR event dedicated to Challenges in Public Health Protection in the 21st Century, which also covers the BfR-Symposium “New Methods, Omics and Novel Concepts in Toxicology – Current Application and future Directions” on 15 – 17 November 2021.

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.
