Unlocking the Art of Jagua Tattoos: A Comprehensive Guide to Jagua Tattoo Kit

Hey, trendsetters! Introducing the latest sensation: Our Jagua Tattoo Kit is now live! In our previous blogs, we've delved into the wonders of henna and its natural approach to creating beautiful tattoos. However, henna produces reddish brown temporary tattoos, which makes people search for other alternatives for black tattoos.

Black henna is a popular product that delivers those deep, dark designs. But here's the catch: despite its name, it's far from natural. Packed with a chemical called PPD (Paraphenylenediamine), it creates black stains and poses serious risks to the skin.

Despite reported disasters, black henna still has a market. Enter the hero – Jagua. Celebrated by Amazon tribes for thousands of years for its vibrant coloring properties, Jagua emerges as a promising solution to creating alluring black temporary tattoos. Today, we explore the significance of Jagua and unveil our Jagua Kit to meet all your tattoo needs.

Understanding Jagua Temporary Tattoo Ink

Jagua ink, made from the Genipa Americana fruit, produces captivating temporary tattoos on the skin. It has been associated with South Americans for over 2000 years, where people use it as body art.

But have you ever wondered how this beautiful Jagua ink is created? The process is simple and effective. The jagua fruit is carefully selected before it reaches full maturity, and its juice is then transformed into a gel. This gel produces dark blue-black stains on the skin that can last up to 1-2 weeks as long as you take proper care of them.

But there's more! Jagua paint isn't just for body art. It's also used to dye clothes and for various artistic projects. Blend it with essential oils to improve the staining properties.

Now, let us understand the safety aspect of Jagua. If you're worried about how it can affect your skin, there's no need to stress. Jagua is as natural as it gets, just like henna. There are no weird chemicals here – it's all plant power, and thus, it is generally safe. But if you're allergic to tropical fruits, you might want to be careful. Jagua gel is essentially the juice from the fruit so it could cause allergies.

For extra safety, do a patch test. Just dab a little jagua on your skin and watch for any signs of allergies. If everything's cool, unleash your creativity through temporary tattoos. But if you notice something is wrong, stop using it and call a doctor for advice. Keep it safe and stylish, friends!

Caring for Jagua Tattoos

While Jagua delivers mesmerizing temporary tattoos, their vibrancy, and longevity heavily depend on the aftercare you provide.

Here are some tips to ensure your stains stick around for the long haul:

  • 1. Follow application instructions: Apply Jagua as directed and allow the paste to dry for the recommended time.
  • 2. Stay dry initially: Limit water exposure to your tattoos in the first few hours after removing the Jagua.
  • 3. Moisturize: Use natural oils like coconut oil to hydrate your skin and guard it against dirt, water & harmful UV rays.
  • 4. A Strict No to Harmful Chemicals: Don’t expose your tattoo to strong chemicals, such as chlorine in pools and strong agents, as they can accelerate the fading process.
  • 5. Beware of friction: Tight clothing and intense activities like dishwashing can contribute to tattoo fading too soon. So, take it easy.
  • 6. Stay hydrated: Hydrating yourself with water improves your overall health. Also, it helps maintain skin elasticity and supports healing.

Remember, Jagua tattoos are temporary and will naturally fade over time. Take pride in caring for them, embracing their evolving beauty at every stage.
