My five-year-old loves them; she considers them a fashion accessory and always has two or three of them to show off. Her nanna gave me an earful yesterday, saying she read someplace the ink in them isn't safe. I can't find anything on the Internet about them. Has anyone heard this?
She's maybe thinking back to the days when there were stories of drugs being concealed in the ink ... and being handed out to kids by drug dealers. False, of course.

She is probably referring to Henna Tattoos. There was a recent news report that Henna Tattoos (which are temporary) can be dangerous.

Thanks, charlotsomtimes, for the correction. I did mean the black henna tattoos. Here is a news article about it- http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2013/03/26/fda-beware-of-black-henna-tattoos/
