Paint the Body Beautiful


As someone commented on one of my earlier posts, reactions to jagua do come up now and again. We just want to remind people that jagua is a fruit. Anyone with known allergies to fruits may also get a reaction to the jagua fruit. Additionally, according to the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP) at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, many individuals with fruit allergy are sensitized to pollen or latex. If you know that you are sensitive to fruits, or to pollen or latex, you should not get a jagua tattoo.

Although Jagua is a natural product, it is possible to have a reaction to any foreign substance applied to the skin. We recommend everyone do a patch test before applying a jagua tattoo.

A reaction to Jagua may appear as an irritation or redness on the skin. If this happens it is important to consult a health care professional before treating any reaction.
