The 5th World Congress on Tattoo and Pigment Research

The 5th World Congress on Tattoo and Pigment Research took place on 24-26 August 2021 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We think back to a successful congress, with many participants from numerous nationalities and working fields, attending physical or virtual. We felt a positive and enthusiastic atmosphere during the congress and the social events. 

Our first hybrid event enabled people all over the world to join and profit from the expertise of the 58 talks and panel discussions during the conference. We tried to involve the virtual participants as much as possible and apologize for all questions that could not be answered either due to time limitations or technical problems. We will take our lessons from here and likely proceed with this hybrid congress format from now on.
