The Centre for Appearance Research ( has launched a new study to explore why people choose to undergo medical tattooing, their experience of the process, and the potential benefits and challenges involved. The findings will help patients, clinicians, and charities to be better informed about what this type of treatment can offer.

All UK adults (aged 18+) with an appearance-altering condition who have undergone medical tattooing within the last 5 years are invited to participate in an individual telephone interview with a CAR researcher. To register your interest in the study, please follow this link:
