A 5-year old boy from Australia decided to have a henna tattoo while holidaying in Bali but now might have permanent scar on his skin. A henna tattoo is a temporary body art using paste from the henna plant, which is usually used in India and other countries to make the intricate patterns on their skin.
What’s so cool about the boy’s scar is it follows exactly the tattoo design, which is a dragon. So since it is now a scar, he can’t remove it, making him the most bad-ass kid in kindy.
More about the chemicals:
Although the tattoos are advertised as containing ‘henna’, a natural reddish substance used by Indians to paint their hands and feet, it actually contains chemical colours and high levels of PPD.
The substance, a known allergen, is used to hasten the dye process, enhance darkness and improve pattern definition.
The college said the term ‘temporary henna tattoo’ was misleading.
Henna tattoo paste is not approved in the US and is only allowed to be imported as hair dye, due to possible skin irritation and allergy which can cause permanent scarring.
