The educational workshop for tattoo artists will interactively elaborate comprehensive scientific and medical knowledge on the subject of and around permanent tattoos together with international experts of various
sectors, including scientists, dermatologists, epidemiologists, tattoo artists and tattoo ink manufacturers.

covered are infections and hygiene, allergic and non-allergic adverse skin reactions to tattoo ink, chemical hazards of tattoo ink and aftercare, preventive measures, consequences of the EU tattoo REACH regulation
for tattoo artists, skin cancer identification, tattooists’ behaviour and tattoo studio equipment.
