Jagua body art is a temporary body decoration, Jagua Ink is made out of an extract of the fruit, Jagua from South America. It's all natural and it leaves a blue black stain which resembles a real tattoo. It is a great option to have a tattoo for about 2 weeks or try out your design to see how it looks. Jagua stain also shows up better on dark skin than henna stain. Please allow 24~48 hours for the color to develop.
