Welcome to the SPCP®

Smiley face

The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals membership represents professionals in the industry who are dedicated to promoting the ideals and standards of the SPCP, offering cosmetic tattooing that is conducted in accordance with safety standards specific to the permanent cosmetic process, and those who stay abreast of and participate in industry activities.


The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MOCRA)

On December 29, 2022, President Biden signed MOCRA into law, setting important requirements for cosmetic manufacturers and brand owners, which include tattoo inks/pigments. Regulatory requirements in whole or in part can be enforceable as early as toward the end of 2023.

The SPCP will post information as we receive it and urges the industry, particularly ink/pigment manufacturers and brand owners, to stay on top of what is happening.

Executive Consultant Kate Shergold represents the SPCP as part of the Alliance of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) Body Arts Committee (BAC). The BAC meets monthly and encourages manufacturers and brand owners to join AFDO and participate in BAC meetings.
