The natural henna artists on Queen St may be there because last year
there was a big city festival that ended in many people getting black
henna pain and suffering, lawsuits, and a sudden awareness of how
dangerous PPD is. ....at least for a while, and in Toronto. Damn
shame people had to find out the hard way ... and sadder that the word
hasn't gotten around.
The artists that put black henna on hundreds and hundreds of people
claimed they had no idea they were causing blisters, scarring and
poisoning. They said the manufacturer just had "black henna" on the
package, and were cluless about the contents. The city authorities
said "not good enough" and shut them down, and made them liable for
the suffering they caused.
