About ESTP

The main objectives of the ESTP to deliver independent expert advice to public authorities and other parties, educate the medical and tattoo as well as permanent make-up community. We aim to advance the manufacturing, distribution and sales of safer tattoo ink and to develop and support research projects, guidelines and publications.

As memberof the ESTP, we will provide you a number of benefits. 

If you have questions in any field regarding tattooing or permanent make-up, we shall reply either in the name of the ESTP or will to connect you with experts within our society.

The ESTP organises recurring congresses in the field to secure a high level of knowledge sharing and networking. 


By now, Tattoo Clinics were opened across Europe and in the US inspired from the first clinic in Copenhagen as part of the ESTP activities.

We hope you will support the research in the field by joining us in the ESTP!
