We will always ensure your henna or Jagua ink designs are created with the utmost care.
Our henna and Jagua ink are natural products and the results of the stain can vary. This is because the stain achieved is very much dependent on your body’s natural chemistry, combined with the aftercare following application on the skin. You will be provided with aftercare advice as part of our service.
Certain medical conditions, medication and even a hormonal imbalance can play a part in the ultimate colour of the stain. Additionally, the stain can differ depending on the part of the body you have your henna or Jagua ink tattoo. The general rule is, the thicker the skin the darker the stain. Therefore, palms of your hands and soles of your feet stain the darkest. The stain will be lighter in comparison on areas of your body where the skin is thinner. A high body temperature and warmer skin speeds up the oxidation process and results in a darker stain.
On some rare occasions, it is possible no stain is achieved at all. As we are unable to guarantee the ultimate stain you may achieve, you may wish to have a stain test before you get your tattoo done. The stain test should be carried out 48 hours before you have your tattoo. Should you require a stain test please contact us. Most people will however enjoy a beautiful red/brown stain if opting to have henna or a gorgeous blue/black if having the Jagua ink.
The Jagua ink is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Both henna and Jagua ink are safe to use on the skin. However, if you have sensitive skin or think you may be allergic to one of the ingredients listed on our FAQ page , we recommend you have a patch test done 24 hours before application of a henna or Jagua ink tattoo.
Please contact us to discuss a patch test if you require one. We will apply a very small amount of henna or Jagua ink on your inner arm, simply wash the paste off after 20 minutes and wait 24 hours for any irritation or reaction.
