Glitter Tattoo Reaction

Post by contrachapado on Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:28 am

A little guy that I did a glitter tattoo on seems to have had a slight reaction. Right around and under the tattoo he had some raised red bumps with whiteheads on top. I used the body glue from Glimmer Body Art. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Is it something in the glue that's irritating to the skin?

I have not heard of that before. When did he have the reaction?

Is there latex in the glue? I think I read somewhere there can be. It could cause a reaction. I'm not familiar with that glue so I can't say. Sorry.

Contact the company for the MSDS to see the ingredient list... could be something in it.

I have not experienced any glue reactions and my daughter is Latex sensative. What did you use to prep the skin?

I used an alcohol wipe to prep the skin. They didn't notice anything right away, but called me about 3 days after he got it. The ingredient list is: water, acrylic, vinyl acetate, and surfactant. It doesn't contain latex. I was wondering if it could be the acrylic.

He could be sensitive to adhesives in general (the vinyl acetate would be the culprit in that case), or sensitive to acrylic resins.

Thanks for the input. I guess I'll just have to skip the glitter tattoos with him in the future.
