Tattoo Lovers: Try Jagua First!

Applying jagua tattoo to arm

So you’re thinking about getting a tattoo, but you’re not sure what to get. And this is important, since you’ll be looking at your tattoo for the rest of your life, right? I know this seems like an obvious thing to say, but sometimes what’s obvious for some is hiding in plain sight for others: jagua tattoos look just like permanent tattoos, except they last two weeks.

We were at a tattoo convention once, and a young woman walked into our booth and asked the artist for a design she was thinking about getting as a permanent tattoo. The next day, she came back, showed us her design (as you know, it takes 24–48 hours for both henna and jagua stains to develop on the skin). Even though she had only waited 24 hours, she knew she loved it. She walked right across the aisle to one of the tattoo artists and requested the very same design on another part of her body. That was like, wow! Sometimes you just know what you want, I guess.

With jagua, you can live with a design for two weeks before making the big decision. And unlike that woman, most people have a much harder time making up their minds about something as important as permanent body art. So, if you’re trying to decide which tattoo you might want for eternity, I highly recommend trying out a jagua tattoo first. They’re gorgeous; their blue/black color looks just like the real thing; there’s no pain or needles involved; you can change your mind if you want to; and they last two weeks!

Our Earth Henna Black Jagua Tattoo Kits come with everything you need to create your own design. The stencil transfers that come included in the kit make it super easy. But if you have a specific design in mind and you don’t know how to draw, I suggest you ask an artist friend to do it for you so you can get a real sense of how it will look. Why not give yourself some options when it’s so simple to get a preview?
