tattoo colors


As some of you may have heard, the EU Tattoo REACH regulation will enter into force at the beginning of January 2022. The law is intended to regulate tattoo products throughout Europe in a standardized way.

For tattooers this means that we no longer can use a lot of tattoo colors. Unfortunately, it is not yet clear which ones. My hope is that the companies that produce tattoo inks will soon offer REACH compatible inks. For now it looks like we have a colorless time ahead.

Everybody who has an ongoing color tattoo project, please contact me, so we can make appointments for this year.

There is also a petition you can sign.

Take care,
