Dermatattooists

Dermatattooists

Forget your everyday health check. We’re talking tattoo checks, thanks to Brazilian suncare brand Sol de Janeiro and its efforts to raise skin cancer awareness.

Proof of brands putting people’s needs before their own, Sol de Janeiro trained over 450 tattooists with the skills to be able to spot skin lesions and the basic signs of skin cancer.
