Which tattoos are not unfortunate
6670 / J XX.GP
the deputy Mag. Johann Maier and comrades
to the Federal Minister of Justice
regarding legal issues and health concerns related to tattooing
Thousands of Austrians have had themselves tattooed in recent years.
There are "classic tattoos" as well as "tattoos" and "permanent make - ups"
In practice, this activity is free (without any commercial authorization) as well
also by commercially authorized persons (beauty therapists, make-up artists or
Beauticians), but also rumored by other traders
There has been a real “tattoo boom” for years. In addition to classic tattooing
- especially from so-called Cosmetic studios - these services offered: e.g. so-called
Tattoos, organic tattoos, or cosmetic tattoos, permanent make - ups that are basically
should express the same thing (for permanent make-up, with the eyeliner,
Eyebrows or lip contours are pricked into the skin).
However, it is still unclear whether beauticians in Austria,
Beauty nurses and make-up artists are allowed to do this at all
The making of tattoos in Austria by “non-doctors” is in fact controversial.
The question is whether this activity is also a right of reservation within the meaning of the Medical Act
represents. In other words, beauticians etc.
"Tattoos", "tattoos" and "permanent make - up" at all.
For the admissibility of "tattooing" (e.g. in cosmetic studios) at least that
Ministry of Economic Affairs - in contrast to doctors' representatives - a clear view:
“Since getting a tattoo has no healing purpose, it counts
Activity also not for the practice of medicine. "
According to this legal opinion, this activity can also be carried out by tradespeople
(as a free trade), numerous trade licenses were granted
the authorities already assigned.
There is therefore very much to suggest that “tattooing” is not something reserved for doctors
Activity is. However, this view is not yet shared by the Supreme Sanitary Council.
From our point of view, this problem can be compared in many areas with “piercing”.
Here, too, there are legal issues (admissibility, clarification, minors and
Liability, bodily harm, etc.).
The general problems:
In Switzerland there is an association of Swiss professional tattooists (VST. Numerous
reputable providers who do this business more or less professionally. Is criticized
from this the hygienic conditions (with the risk of infection, worst
if there is AIDS or hepatitis B + C). That is why the tattoos must be taken under strictly
hygienic conditions and modern equipment. The VST knows
also internal guidelines for its members, neither minors nor
Pregnant women still suffering from an infectious disease can be tattooed.
It is generally essential that work is carried out in a sterile manner and with disposable needles - otherwise they are
Infections - with enormous health effects - possible. Leukemia - and
People with skin diseases should definitely consult their family doctor.
Similar problems arise in Austria.
A lot of young people especially don't think about how long to keep this tattoo
want - remorse often comes a short time later. With modern pigment lasers
but remove tattoos and tattoos. However, the treatment is tedious,
painful and costly.
Unfortunately, there are still no addresses of residents in Austria
Dermatologists who remove tattoos with modern laser technology (different in Germany).
In addition to the general medical and legal problems, there is a
Synthetic inks are used for tattooing, some of which are suspected
to be carcinogenic.
According to a report by Ökotest (11/1998), almost all of the colors that pierced the skin are
become dangerous - they give off carcinogenic substances (AZO - pigments).
23 colors with red and yellow tones were selected for this test, with 20 colors
contained dangerous azo pigments in this test. It was made with normal water
Dissolved substances that lead to carcinogenic aromatic amines. The health one
The problem is that these amines can also get into the bloodstream. Furthermore
Enormous amounts of organohalogen compounds were found to be unhealthy
Substance group are known. Others contained heavy metals (such as nickel), which in certain cases
People cause allergic reactions.
According to our information, these dyes are also used in Austria
Used by tattoo artists.
It is still unclear under which legal regulation tattooing or tattoo inks are used
Permanent make-up fall. Are they subject to the Chemicals Act or the
Food Act or the Cosmetics Ordinance.
This legal uncertainty is shocking, as it is even used for certain textiles
azo dyes was banned. For tattoo and permanent make-up colors
which are injected under the skin of humans, however, does not apply this prohibition
Most of those who offer these services work in an unlawful area. A
Clarification by the responsible Federal Ministry (Federal Ministry of Labor, Health and
Social or BKA) or the legislature is necessary.
The undersigned MPs therefore address the Federal Minister of Justice
