Toxic tattoo inks? Update 2022. Current developments, risks and research.

Reports about toxins in tattoo inks appear regularly in the media. The new EU-wide restriction bans numerous pigments & ingredients – but what is really in the ink? How is the risk to humans assessed and what undesirable effects from impurities and bad ingredients are to be expected? What research do paint manufacturers do & can’t I just mix inks myself?

In this workshop we will also talk in dialogue about how to find out about “bad” paints and what diseases can occur in connection with tattoos. The session will include a small update towards 2021.
