Abstract

Tattoos and permanent make-up have enjoyed great popularity during recent years. However, a careful consideration of the risks is made only rarely before each procedure. Above all the undefined pigment compositions create unforeseeable health and appearance problems. The family physician should be familiar with the techniques, materials, as well as the possible risks of tattoos and permanent make-up when advising patients. Medical complications include, among other things, infections, allergies, keloid and granuloma formation.
