Hope whoever did this, and anyone like them, gets shut down, but that's obviously not going to happen. Poor kid, poor guilt-ridden parents. Hope he heals without scarring.

What, are they going to take away the tattoo guy's stool and mat? Only idiot tourists get Henna tats from guys on the sidewalk and the beach. Fark 'em; they're idiots.

I was thinking the same thing. Imagine this guy sitting in a bar when he's 50. "Yea, I got these in Bali, almost killed me".

known for causing allergic reactions with lifelong effects. These can include skin problems and a permanent allergy to anything containing PPD, including black clothing, dark hair dye and some cosmetics.

Well, there goes his future as a goth

So let me get this straight.... the kid is in no pain, is unable to dress like an Emo Kid (possible alergies to black clothes, cosmetics, Depech Mode) and has to rub a bit of cream on his DRAGON SHAPED WELTS... and this is a "Nightmare"?

From Wikipedia: "It was voted Allergen of the Year in 2006 by the American Contact Dermatitis Society."

In other news, there is such a thing as "Allergen of the Year".

Sounds like "black henna". Stay away from that stuff. Real henna that's far less likely to burn one's skin is fifty shades of brown.

No, henna. It's like a brown reddish.

Yikes. My boss gets Henna done every time she travels out that way... and it's always pretty uch gone by the time she makes it back to the office.

Is that chemical normally used in Henna? I've only ever had the regular kind of tattoos....

No, this stuff is called "black henna". It's not actually henna, it's usually made by using some kind of hair dye I believe. The stuff is toxic but people want to get it because it shows up black on the skin and more like a real tattoo. Regular henna is always a reddish-brown color and is pretty much harmless.

I don't understand why they keep going back to Bali. They keep getting arrested, blown up or dragon-scarred.

/Queensland is to Australia as Florida is to the USA.

My Dad's from Brisbane. I'd vigorously dispute that statement if it was in anyway possible to do so.

Why oh why would parents even think about letting a 5 year old do that? The parents should be caned......farktards. Why not just get him a Prince Albert fer crissakes!

"Black henna" use is banned in the US. Nasty, nasty mojo.

While it is possible to have a negative reaction to the oils used in henna paste, henna itself isn't often harmful (though it's not recommended to children 6yo or under).

I love getting henna done, but that may be in large part due to my GF doing it for a living.

The allergic reaction will subside, probably. May pop up again if he's exposed to the same chemical. For permanence, you need this:

I was prepared to go after the author for being all "toxic chemical" since those words are thrown around way too often, but on looking it up it does seem like this stuff is pretty nasty, and apparently banned for skin contact most places. So even though it is used as a hair dye, you aren't supposed to let it touch the scalp. ???

BR549: Why oh why would parents even think about letting a 5 year old do that?


It probably seemed like any other 'temporary tattoo'. I hope you realize there were no needles involved, this was applied to the skin. Oh no, he has to apply steroid cream! Stay inside and never take any risks! Don't let them put ice in your drink! Stay in the tourist approved areas!

Because most parents aren't scardey farktards and realize that letting a child have some expression isn't a bad thing. sucks that artist of something temporary included something not so temporary.

my son spent a few weeks out west with my mother when he was six. He called and said that he wanted to get a blue mohawk but grandma said he would need my permission. He came home with a blue mohawk. hair grows back, big deal.

sometimes in life, people need to learn the hardway that things have repercussions. I'd rather of had my son learn that lesson with something remotely harmless at an early age.

/your analogy is quite stupid btw. a temporary tattoo != piercing genitalia.

So you're telling me PPD can cause allergic reactions, with lifelong effects such as "a permanent allergy to anything containing PPD"?

That's some hard-hitting beat reporting there.
