A child on vacation returned home complaining of itching under the black henna tattoo she received while on a trip with her family. Traditional henna has an ingredient that has been known to react poorly with a child’s sensitive skin. Her skin ended up blistering and scarring into the design giving her a permanent reminder of her temporary tattoo.
While a chemical burn may not be the best way to get a free permanent tattoo, she will definitely be one of the only kids in her class this summer rocking tribal designs in grade school. In this picture she almost knows she’s streets ahead of her class in “Cool Points”
While chemical burns may not be the most ideal way of getting free permanent tattoos, it certainly has to be less painful than the fractal pattern tattoos that come from surviving a lightning strike.
