Color Development on Different Shades of Human Skin

After many years of working with the Genipa Americana fruit AKA Jagua, we have discovered a  fascinating fact. Originally , the juice inside the fruit is cream color, almost white (when the fruit is unripe), then when exposed to the air, it gradually turns green, to blue, to black, this is when the juice has maximum stain ability.

The color of the tattoo depends on a few factors; the freshness of the Jagua Ink Gel, the temperature of the skin, and the color of the skin. Jagua tends to develop on darker skin a very dark blue, almost black, while on pale skin is develops into a mid-blue.

On pale skin, the Jagua Tattoo develops into a blue-ish color, the gradually turns into a navy-blue.
