Natural Body Art with ALCHEMY
Alchemy Slow Living Studios is now taking appointments for jagua body art.
Indigenous to Central America, jagua is a blue staining-temporary body art. The fruit is edible and the fermented juice can be used to create beautiful body art.
While jagua is temporary and only stains the surface, like henna, the aftercare is very different. Jagua stains EVERYTHING it touches (there's no 'correcting' or erasing like there is with henna).
And you get to scrub it off with soap and water 4 hours after application - - and it's kinda magical the way it works. Immediately after you take off the paste/gel, you might not see anything but a grey shadow - - it gets WAY darker!
