Risk
The product poses a chemical risk because it contains barium (152 mg/kg), chromium (83 mg/kg), arsenic (123 mg/kg) and nickel (measured value: 15.4 mg/kg). According to the Council of Europe Resolution ResAP (2008) 1, the level of barium in tattoo inks cannot exceed 50 mg/kg, the level of chromium cannot exceed 0.2 mg/kg, the level of arsenic 2 mg/kg. The nickel levels in tattoo inks and permanent make-up must be as low as technically achievable as nickel has a high allergenic potential. Also, the product does not comply with the relevant national legislation.
