Jagua is a fruit indigenous to the rain forest, scientifically known as Genipa Americana. It is a common plant throughout the tropics of South America, and has been used as a body art medium for over 2,000 years. Jagua works by permanently staining the outermost layer of skin and creating a blue-black temporary tattoo that lasts until the skin regenerates in 7 to 14 days.
We have worked with the tribes of Panama for many years in farming, harvesting and producing the highest quality body ink made from the Jagua fruit. Jagua Ink is the highest quality body ink available on the market.
