For years we have been warning our customers against so-called "black henna tattoos" — and you were smart to stay away from them. These dangerous concoctions are not made from natural henna, and they pose a serious risk to your health. But with the exciting new Earth Jagua Black Temporary Tattoo Kit, the makers of Earth Henna have developed a natural, painless, completely safe kit for creating temporary tattoos that are truly black — they look just like the real thing and remain on the skin for up to 15 days.

I did expect the result to be a darker color, but overall a good product. Good alternative to a tattoo and a great way to experiment with possible tattoo ideas and placements!

This jagua is awesome! I was worried that it wouldn't be very dark, but it's GREAT! Very easy to mix and apply. The kit comes with a decently fine tip (not EXTREMELY fine, but finer than I had expected), and it's a good consistency. Color is midnight; a nice, dark, blue-black. IT TAKES 24 HOURS TO DARKEN. Do not get discouraged when you rinse the gel off and the tattoo is light grey. It DOES darken significantly over 24 hours. The stain does last 2 weeks; however, after the first week it faded about 1/3 the original darkness. I re-applied the gel and it completely renewed the dark color, so it was no problem. There is a decent amount, as long as you're only using it for smaller designs. I've already gotten 3 applications from it, and I still have plenty left. It stores well in the fridge so far, and it goes a long way. The stencils the kit comes with were not to my liking, but it's easy to make your own. It found that I was able to print my own designs, and if I applied them (using the eucalyptus) immediately after printing, when the ink was still wet from the printer, it provided an okay stencil for me. Overall, I was very pleased with this purchase. I was a little wary of ordering a product like this online, because I wanted to be sure I was getting a good product - but this is certainly what I was looking for!

Lasted about ten days, very satisfied with the product. I would purchase again. Good to use as a guide to whether you would like a permanent tat.

The product was delivered quickly. All of the items advertised were included and useful for creating the best product. The tattoos lasted up to 10-11 days, with the darkest and most pronounced color on days 3-5 before fading. Smaller/thinner lines fade quicker but the thicker, more substantive tattoos lasted the longest.

So this stuff works pretty decent. Came with some templates, the usual tribal stuff, a butterfly, spider and so on. All pretty small - maybe 2" by 2" and a couple 4" x 2". You put oil on your arm, press on the template, it leaves a faint image of the design and then you fill in by hand with the ink dispenser. It dries, forms a kind of crust. You rinse off and it is looks faded, then the next day it looks better. Tat comes out blackish blue color similar to ink you might think someone got from a back alley tat parlor, but if that is the look you're going for it is fine. It worked for me. I actually hand drew a design and filled it in, worked well. Faded after about a week, then at about 2 weeks was very faded, 2 1/2 weeks gone.

I've tried several different inks, and this is the best. Instead of a reddish tint like henna, it's kind of a bluish black tint. It does take a good 24 hours to darken, but works well. Last about two weeks.
