Petition No 1072/2020 by Erich Mähnert (Austrian) on maintaining different pigments in Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH)
Petition Summary The petitioner states that an EU-wide ban on Pigment Blue 15:3 and Pigment Green 7 would have a lengthy negative impact on the economic competitiveness of European tattooists and pigmenters vis-a-vis providers of those services outside the EU and would jeopardise the existence of that sector. Consumers could turn to providers abroad or switch to cowboy operators. Austria is named as an example. In Austria, the provision of tattooing / pigmenting services is governed by some of the strongest regulations in Europe. It is also standard practice to use products wrongly declared to be artists’ paint. This results in a situation whereby the statutory minimum requirements concerning sterility and compliance with threshold values with regard to organic and inorganic impurities no longer need to be monitored, as liability passes from the manufacturer to the tattooist/pigmenter.

DAMIAN GUERIN MESSAGE REGARDING MARIO'S MESSAGE:
An extremely important message by world renowned Artist, Mario Barth @mariobarthtattoo, creator and owner of INTENZE Tattoo Ink @intenzetattooink and the famous Starlight Tattoo Studios @starlighttattoolasvegas in the United States and Europe discussing the ban of Blue 15 and Green 7 tattoo pigments which will wipe out whole categories of tattoo ink colors besides just Blue and Green. Watch this video and see what we are up against presently in Europe and coming our way in the United States if the FDA and Congress has it's way! Like I said during my presentation at the CTS (Coalition for Tattoo Safety) convention in Las Vegas 2 years ago - it's not GOING to happen...ITS ALREADY HAPPENING! 🤦♂️ 💥Please repost to every tattoo artist you know and especially to your clients! This is a matter of Freedom and Choice.💥
