    Jagua ~ The Traditional, Natural Alternative to ‘PPD’

    January 22nd, 2008

    Thankfully these days there is a safe and natural alternative to the black stain achieved with PPD products.

You have probably already seen this body art on many TV documentaries, like (BBC), its possible that for some years people have actually assumed that the body art was permanent tattoos because they actually look so similar.

    We are proud to be at the forefront of the new jagua body art industry! You can find out more about Jagua from our sister site The first Jagua Body Art website!
