What makes our ink so unique? The edding tattoo ink formulation is a genuine innovation, which edding spent five years researching and testing before bringing it to the market. The edding tattoo inks are manufactured in-house in Germany based on a certified quality management system and do not contain many of the additives that were previously required in tattoo inks.

All pigments (incl. pigment green and blue) of the edding tattoo inks comply with current European and German laws and regulations. These include the provisions of the current European REACH Regulation, the German Tattoo and Cosmetics Regulation (Tätowiermittel- und Kosmetikverordnung) and the German Food and Feed Code (Futtermittelgesetzbuch).

The law as a starting point

edding’s tattoo inks are fully compliant with German and EU legislation in terms of ingredients and manufacturing processes. Current and announced future regulations form the basis of our innovative ink redevelopment.

As few ingredients as possible

With a view to minimising potential interactions and risks, our motto for ingredients is "as little as possible, as much as necessary".

Researched ingredients only

The key criterion for selecting functional components for edding tattoo inks is confirmed toxicological test results. We prefer well-researched raw materials to less well-analysed ones, which enhances product safety. The extensive database of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is chiefly used for this purpose.

Ingredients of the edding tattoo inks

Keep it safe and simple!

We know exactly what is in our tattoo inks and write it down. Basically, however, what is not in the edding tattoo inks is more important:


The edding tattoo colors are made without using raw materials of animal origin and are therefore vegan.

Talk about your pigment edge tested only

For us, adhering to the highest safety standards also means that we don’t use every pigment for our inks, because various scientific studies show that certain pigments could be harmful to our health. Since we want to play it completely safe for you, we only use a small number of pigments for which well-founded analyses are already available.

As a result, we offer a slightly smaller range of colours. But don’t worry! Our tattoo artists are experts in mixing and blending, meaning we can offer you a variety of different colours for your tattoo.

And the journey isn’t over for us yet. We want to constantly improve and move with the times. And, for us, this means that our tattoo ink will never be "finished". We want to continuously develop, optimise and expand our range of inks over time.

Sterile disposable packaging

Open especially for you!

Suitably packaged: all edding tattoo inks are packaged in sterile, disposable packaging and are deliberately non-resealable. After opening, the inks must be used immediately and cannot be reused. With our ingredients and packaging concept, we therefore reduce your risk to a minimum – less is sometimes more!

Production and quality assurance

Tattoo colors made in Germany

We’ve deliberately opted for edding in-house production "Made in Germany" based on DIN EN ISO 22716 (Cosmetics – GMP). This international certification guarantees consistently high production standards in the manufacture of cosmetic products and goes beyond the minimum legal requirements for tattoo inks.

In our edding TATTOO LAB, we have complete control over the entire production process. In other words, the composition of every single edding tattoo ink is known, controlled and documented on the product itself.

After production, edding tattoo inks are sterilised and regularly tested in microbiological laboratories. Our goal is to ensure a uniform quality standard across all inks and production batches.

All ingredients are clearly marked on the label and each ink package can be traced via its individual batch number. This offers absolute transparency and enables targeted aftercare in conjunction with your edding TATTOO ID .

We can trace everything from the source of our raw materials, through the finished bottle, to the individual tattoo.
