Consultation underway amid concerns around the safety of certain tattoo inks and permanent makeup

by | Oct 18, 2021

From January 2022, the European Union will restrict the use of certain harmful chemicals in tattoo inks and PMU. The aim is to prevent the use of chemicals in tattoo inks and permanent makeup that are known to have specific hazardous properties which make it more likely that someone might experience harmful effects.

In the UK, HSE is examining the evidence that led to the EU decision along with other available information, to decide if a restriction on certain harmful chemicals in tattoo inks and permanent makeup requires similar regulation in Great Britain.

 

They have also launched a consultation to gather views which is open until 2nd November. It is important that the views of the sector are heard.

 

Please therefore share this consultation with permanent or semi-permanent makeup artists here.
