Henna Tattoos Not Safe
I know that Spring Break is upon us, and a lot of people are off to meet the sea (or the Gulf) to sew some of the oats that we have left. Many will try to re-live their youth, be it through an all-nighter at the Flora-Bama, or sucking in their gut while walking on the beach, or even sporting a new “tattoo”.
Not the permanent ones, of course, but the temporary “Henna” tattoo, a temporary tattoo that looks enough like the real thing to grant you entry to a biker bar or Walmart any day of the week.
New studies show that these Henna tattoos might not be as safe as previously thought: it seems that, according to Yahoo!, some people may experience
redness, blisters, raised red weeping lesions, loss of pigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight, and even permanent scarring
from some of these “temporary” tattoos.
So, moms and dads, maybe just one more little talk with the kids before they head off to stupidville!
