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.

I would like to thank your company for its excellent service.  I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Mr M T | Lincoln

I would also like to say thank you to you personally for all your professional expertise.  It has been fantastic to have your continuity throughout this case.  Your calm support has been really appreciated.  I am pleased (and relieved) with the result.

Mrs W
