Tattoos are popular — half of all Germans regard tattoo inks as safe

(BfR Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) Tattoos are popular. Roughly one in eight Germans already has one. A recent representative survey conducted by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) shows that many people consider tattoos to be safe to health, with almost 90 percent of people who already have a tattoo believing this to be the case. Few of them know that many tattoo inks have not yet been examined.
