We are proud to announce the 6th international congress organized by the European Society of Tattoo and Pigment Research (ESTP) since the inauguration in 2013. This year's conference will be held at the conference rooms of the Austrian Economic Chamber (WKO).
The target audiences of the WCTP (formerly ECTP) conferences are not only researchers, but attract also tattoo practitioners (decorative tattooists and PMU artists), the tattoo ink and -machine industry, representatives of national and regional authorities and everyone with any special interest in tattoos. This broad audience makes WCTP conferences a unique environment of knowledge exchange, insights, sharing of experiences, novelty, fuel to the mind and also friendships.
We invite everyone, who wishes to be on the pulse of the latest developments in the field of tattoo and pigment research, to join our next conference and get part of our globally growing society.
The main themes of the WCTP2023 will be:
