Jagua Tattoo is a temporary tattoo on skin made from the application of the extract of the Genipa americana fruit known as Jagua. The Jagua fruit has been used for centuries as body ornamentation and medicinal purposes in many areas of South America surrounding the Amazon. It has only been introduced lately to North America and Europe as an addition to henna body art.
A jagua tattoo means a temporary tattoo on the skin using Jagua as a staining agent, similar to henna in properties. Jagua gives the user an idea of how a permanent tattoo will be for about a week or two.
