Sad little Gekko ....... PPD "black henna" burn!
Quote and pic permitted from the woman who got zapped:
"I got the tattoo on Aug. 23rd. On Sept. 10th, after all the black
was about gone, it started this reaction. I went to the Dr. right
away. They gave me a mild steroid cream and a antihistamine. Today
it is still just as nasty. The whole area is bright red, puffy and in
the perfect shape of the gecko. I just got this for a fun thing to
do with my kids in Mexico, I would never had picked a gecko if I
thought it would be permanent!"
It's just so damn sad that this appears to be one of Alex's lovely
Gekkos, and I KNOW Alex'd NEVER EVER use PPD. Looks like Some b*st*rd
in Mexico nabbed her patterns from the online journal article and
burned someone with them.
