(3/28/2013)

According to Boston.com, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are warning people on vacation on the dangers of getting a temporary tattoo.

Popular among many visitors to Bali, a temporary tattoo can last from a few days to several weeks. Various “temporary” dyes are used to “paint” the skin without piercing the skin. Various chemical substances, such as henna, are also used in the process.

Dr. Linda Katz, director of the Federal Drug Administration’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors, said: “Just because a tattoo is temporary it doesn’t mean that it is risk free.”

Some customers of temporary tattoos report severe allergic reactions to the dyes used that can leave long-lasting marks and, in some cases, permanent scarring.

The FDA has adverse reports of redness, blisters, weeping lesions, loss of pigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight and, occasionally, permanent scarring.

The dyes used by temporary tattoo artists may contain plant-based henna or mixtures containing commercial hair dyes. Some hair dyes, used to achieve darker coloration, often contain contains p-phenylenediamine (PPD) – an ingredient that can cause a severe skin reaction for some.
