On Tuesday, March 15th, at 2 p.m. ET, FDA will host a webinar on tattoos and permanent makeup. Bhakti Petigara Harp, Ph.D., of the Office of Cosmetics and Colors, Division of Color Certification and Technology in FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, will provide an overview of the composition of tattoo and permanent makeup inks and the pigments used in them, as well as their regulatory status. Dr. Petigara Harp will talk about problems that have occurred with the use of these inks, such as allergic reactions, infections, and scarring, and will address FDA's response to these occurrences. She will also discuss misrepresentation of these inks and pigments as "FDA approved."
An opportunity to ask questions will follow the presentation.
