Date added: 25/10/2018 Health & Safety Advice

On an ad-hoc basis some of our previous students and long term customers contact us occasionally requesting advice in relation to clients with specific health related issues where there may be doubt on their part if medical advice should be sought from the clients treating doctors in relation a proposed cosmetic tattoo service, generally we prefer to err on the side of caution.

We wish to advise all current & previous students and shop customers that if cosmetic tattoo pigments sourced from another supplier are intended to be used for any part of your client service we are unable to provide any advice or support in relation to specific questions related to the risks or safety of your client services.

Q: Why is this?

There now are numerous importers and suppliers of pigments in the market place, many of whom are not registered with our chemicals regulator, some have no evidence of auditing for compliance with Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances (AICS) or the Poisons Standard, some do not disclose the full ingredients list of the pigment, and random testing by the regulators has shown that in some instances the labelled ingredients do not match the actual ingredients in the bottle.

There are now a sizable number of documented cases of severe adverse health reactions to some of the ingredients contained within tattoo pigments that are still available in the market place and very few manufacturers that we are aware of are currently in compliance with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) proposed restrictions list.

Q: If I decide to experiment with other brands of cosmetic tattoo pigment where should I get advice related to my client?

We need to stress that if you are experimenting with other pigment brands sourced from other suppliers we are unable provide any specific health and safety advice to you, effective immediately if you contact us for advice we will be asking about and documenting the brand of pigment being used for the service.

The vast majority of local pigment suppliers do not have a registered health professional on staff therefore any health advice provided will be unqualified (of little or no value), therefore your only option is to refer any and all questions you may have related to your clients medications and health related disclosures to the clients treating doctors.

As you can appreciate it is not possible for us to offer any advice in relation to the safety of pigments sourced from third parties when we have not subjected the product to our own internal auditing and compliance checking. We believe that some of the adverse health events taking place due to pigment ingredient experimentation may ultimately lead to significant legal claims particularly in instances where the pigment is not in compliance.

Thank you for your understanding.
