‘Scarred for life’: Mum’s fear in Bali

I recently found myself during a internal alloy and was anxious to run into my crony from Mothers Group (I’ve selected not to share her name for remoteness reasons), though fast found out her story was not so thrilling. She was during a doctors with her son, both had shocked looks on their faces as they’d recently returned from a smashing holiday in Bali, usually to have a greeting to what they suspicion was a simple, fun, henna tattoo.

I’ll let my crony share her story with you, though I’d give these clearly healthy tattoos a large miss, no matter where we are. From Byron to Bulgaria, I’m training of fear stories. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

“When travelling to Bali, everybody tells we what to do and what not to do. Add this to your list of ‘do nots’ … do NOT get a henna tattoo, unless we can be 100 per cent certain it’s henna. My 10 year aged son got what we suspicion was a ‘henna tattoo’ on a final day in Bali and it wasn’t until a week later, after we’d returned home, that it started branch red, itchy, lifted and sore. It wasn’t henna!

We trust it was black hair color churned with … God knows what, as apparently it’s cheaper to squeeze and brew with chemicals. It might have been churned with petrol or kerosene we’ve given learned. After a march of prednisolone and cortisone it isn’t tingling and red anymore, though my son will substantially have scars for years to come. To a indicate that we are now consulting a cosmetic surgeon. Please, be really discreet when deliberation a henna tattoo, generally for your children.”
