Date added: 01/07/2015 Fake Equipment Suppliers

It has come to our attention that suppliers of fake/replica cosmetic tattoo equipment in/to Australia are providing false and misleading information about the products that they supply and making false claims about the relationship of their replica products to the genuine brands.


Amiea devices are manufactured in Berlin Germany under European manufacturing standards, the company has international patents on their inventions that protect their exclusive rights. Some fake equipment manufacturers (often based in Asia) have copied external appearance of some devices and released them into the market place in the hope of misleading consumers into believing their devices are the same as those they are copying. For example unfortunately some of the Nouveau Contour product lines have been imitated by replica manufacturers, consumers need to be aware that even though these devices may look similar they are not manufactured to the same standards or quality as the genuine devices.

One of the major concerns about the fake equipment is the sterility of the consumable supplies, if a manufacturer and or their suppliers are prepared to infringe on the patents of the legitimate manufacturers and to deceive consumers about their products then it raises obvious questions about their ethics and if their representations about sterility can be believed.

It has also been demonstrated that some of the fake needle chambers being sold are potential causes of cross infection due to backflow into the hand piece due to poorly manufactured internal membranes.

Examples of False Claims Being Made

  • The fake devices are genuine
  • The fake devices are manufactured in the same factory
  • All the genuine devices are manufactured in China too

Consumer Law

Making these types of false and misleading claims to consumers is a serious breach of Australian consumer law and suppliers may be subject to prosecution and heavy fines. In addition to state trading laws The Competition and Consumer Act 2010 has specific provisions for this type of deceptive conduct by traders.

Your Rights

You should not tolerate being lied to or duped by rogue suppliers if you believe that you have been sold fake equipment and or provided false and misleading information by fake equipment suppliers then we encourage you to seek advice from your state consumer protection agencies.

In addition we will be monitoring the situation in relation to our product lines and will not hesitate to involve the ACCC if we believe it is appropriate to do so.

Our Advice

Avoid dealing with fake equipment suppliers their only objective is to take your money with little regard for ethics or safety.
