Teen left with facial scar from henna tattoo

A teenager has been left with severe scaring on his face after getting a £9 temporary henna tattoo while on holiday in Zante.

The teen got the tattoo to resemble that of Mike Tyson’s but was shocked to discover it had left him with red scarring down the side of his face, in the shape of the tattoo design. The injuries could last up to 5 years.

This incident is similar to one that occurred in 2015 where a 16 year old girl was left with potentially permanent scars on her leg after a black henna tattoo burned her. It was found that the henna contained the chemical paraphenylenediamine.

Tattoo experts have issued warnings about the dangers of temporary henna tattoos and even advising people to avoid them altogether.

If you have suffered an injury from a temporary or permanent tattoo, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee compensation claim. We act for a number of clients who have suffered similar injuries and it is important that you get independent, expert legal advice, preferably as soon as possible, from our specialist lawyers.

Thank you so much for everything over the last few years it’s been a pleasure.

Mr C L

Just to say big THANK YOU for your time yesterday. You have explained things very clearly and easy to understand.

I felt you are very good at what you doing and you took your time with me, despite you knew this was more likely to fail. I felt very comfortable with your over the phone especially that English is not my first language and you are very friendly and patient. I spoke to others about my child’s accident and you were THE BEST PERSON to speak to! Just wanted you to know that.
