Event Overview
Welcome message:

It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2nd European Congress on Tattoo and Pigment Research (ECTP2015), which will be held 29-30 April 2015 in Brugge, Belgium.

The 2nd ECTP congress held in Brugge in April 2015 is organised to present cutting edge research on tattoos and industrial pigments ranging from basic research to clinical research including health aspects and social sciences.

The congress invites chemists, biologists, physicists, toxicologists, formulation scientists, medical doctors including dermatologists and plastic surgeons, epidemiologists, sociologists and experts working with regulatory affairs to attend and to contribute with their presentations.

The research object tattoos, pigments, skin and health was neglected in the past. The 1st congress held in Copenhagen in November 2013 was a historical start up and establishment of a platform for achievements in recognition of the obvious knowledge and performance gap of the field relative to the fact that several millions of Europeans are tattooed with chemical substances and products of widely unknown specification, purity and sterility exposing them to uncertainty and risks. Such situation carries known and undiscovered hazardous health effects. The 2nd congress in Brugge follows up on the achievements in Copenhagen by offering an excellent scientific programme on the latest research in the field.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brugge!

Kind regards on behalf of the ESTP board and the Local Organising Committee
