“In a study conducted by the University of Regensburg approximately six percent of tattooed people complain about persisting health problems caused by a non-sterile treatment (among other causes). In Germany this means about 500.000 people are affected and are suffering from allergic reactions, extreme light sensitivity, inflammation, nodules or other variations. A non-sterile treatment can cause further unwanted tattoo issues like redness, wetting wounds and so-called foreign body granulomas (tissue proliferation) that occur when the body encloses and encapsulates foreign substances.


Tattoo Artists absolutely have to work hygienically, sterile and flawless.”
