Tattooing as an art form has existed for centuries. The industry has been primarily self-regulated since it’s creation. However, in recent years the regulatory landscape has changed in Europe and increasingly in the United States. These regulatory changes have necessitated the unification of our industry and the creation of the Coalition for Tattoo Safety.
