Did you know that the inks that are used in tattoos and permanent makeup and the pigments in these inks are subject to FDA regulation as cosmetics and color additives? It's true, however, FDA has not tried to regulate the use of tattoo inks and the pigments that are used and they don't control the actual practice of tattooing. Instead, the rules and laws for the tattoo process are handled through local laws and by local jurisdictions.

But with the growth in popularity of tattooing and permanent makeup, the FDA has started to take a closer inspection of the safety guidelines. The top concerns being investigated are tattoo removal , adverse reactions to tattoo colors, and infections that result from tattooing.

At the top of the list of concerns is the increasing variety of pigments and diluents being used in tattooing. Currently there are more than fifty different pigments and shades on the market, and the list continues to grow. While a number of color additives are approved for use in cosmetics, none are approved for injection into the skin.

If your tattoo was created with an unapproved color additive in the tattoo ink then the ink is considered adulterated. In fact, numerous pigments used in tattoo inks are not approved for skin contact at all. Some tattoo shops use industrial grade colors that are made for printers' ink or automobile paint.

Regardless, tons of people choose to get tattooing in its various forms. Some choose to do so for aesthetic reasons or an initiation rite, while others choose permanent makeup as a time saver or because they have physical difficulty applying regular, temporary makeup. And still for some people, tattooing is an addition to reconstructive surgery, particularly of the face or breast, to simulate natural pigmentation. People who have lost their eyebrows due to alopecia, a hair loss disorder, may want to have eyebrows tattooed on, while people with vitiligo, skin pigmentation disorder, use tattooing to help camouflage the condition.

Whatever their reason, consumers should be aware of the risks involved in order to make an informed decision.
