Health Tip: Temporary Tattoos Could Have Side Effects

(HealthDay News) -- A temporary tattoo may seem like a harmless alternative to the permanent option, but even a temporary tattoo has potential side effects, experts say.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says these side effects could include:

  • Redness where a tattoo is applied.
  • Blistering skin.
  • Formation of red skin lesions.
  • Loss of skin pigmentation.
  • Greater sensitivity to sunlight.
  • Permanent scarring.
