The start of 2022 will be seminal. On January 4, the new EU legislation “Tattoo-REACH” came into effect. From this day more than 4,000 ingredients used in ink for tattoos will be banned.
The ink manufacturers are therefore currently working at high pressure to make inks that can meet the new requirements.
We are in daily dialogue with product developers, professionals in Europe and tattoo artists who fear their business as we are trying to find the best solution.
