Temporary Tattoos and Henna

Music by Shelley EnszIf you want a tattoo but find that it is medically unwise for you, what about temporary tattoos, like henna? Henna is only approved for use as hair dye, and should not be used on the skin. In the U.S., look for products that have FDA approved ingredients.

Temporary Tattoos. Our temporary tattoos are made in the USA with FDA approved ingredients. Tattoofun.com.

FDA Alerts for Temporary Tattoos and Henna/Mehndi

FDA Alert: Temporary Tattoos. An Import Alert is in effect for several foreign-made temporary tattoos. The temporary tattoos subject to the import alert are not allowed into the United States because they don't have the required ingredient declaration on the label or they contain colors not permitted for use in cosmetics applied to the skin. FDA.

FDA Alert: Henna/Mehndi. Henna, a coloring made from a plant, is approved only for use as a hair dye, not for direct application to the skin, as in the body-decorating process known as mehndi. This unapproved use of a color additive makes these products adulterated and therefore illegal. FDA.

Your Guide to Reporting Problems to FDA. If you have had a bad reaction to a tattoo, permanent make-up, or temporary tattoo you can report the reaction to the FDA. Hopefully the more calls and e-mails the FDA receives the more attention and resources they will put toward regulating this industry and answering these questions. FDA.
