Tattoos are made by piercing the skin with a tattoo needle. However, the usage of a single needle for multiple people can lead to many types of skin problems or infections.  To overcome this problem, many tattoo artists nowadays use disposable needles, tubes, and disposable grips. The use of disposable needles and other parts helps in reducing the risks of cross-contamination. Moreover, disposable needles are cost-effective even for the tattoo artists and there is no need to sterilize the tubes or needles while using disposables.

In addition, many countries across the globe are implementing rules and regulations for the import of tattoo accessories such as tattoo inks. Regulations regarding the registration of tattoo accessories’ importers and exporters are also being implemented in many countries.

Following are the laws applicable for purchasing tattoo pigments from a foreign country and from Australian suppliers:

Regulations for purchasing of tattoo pigment from a foreign country:

  • Tattoo pigment purchaser should be registered with NICNAS

Global Tattoo Accessories Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

The tourism industry is one of the biggest contributing factors to the growth of the tattoo industry. It is becoming increasingly popular among tourists to get local art/traditional tattoos whilst visiting a foreign country or as part of the travel. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights’ survey, in 2018, 80% of total tattoos done in Miami were done by the tourists’ population. Moreover, tattoo conventions and conferences such as Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival, the Singapore Tattoo Show, and the International London Tattoo Convention are also helping the tattoo tourism to grow. However, due to the pandemic, the tourism industry has been affected drastically. According to United Nation’s World Tourism Organization, international tourist arrivals decreased by 22% in Q1 of 2020. This decrease in tourism, which was due to COVID-19 pandemic in turn affected the tattoo industry significantly.
