Jagua A Journey into Body Art From The Amazon

A Review By Andrea R. Garrison - Online With Andrea

In the book Jagua A Journey Into Body Art from the Amazon by Carine Fabius we get to learn about the origins of this natural temporary skin dye called Jagua. This book is based on the journals of Pascal Giacomini and the experiences he encountered when he visited the Amazon in search of the Jagua. We get a great overview of the history, the culture, the beauty, the philosophy and the heart of the regions indigenous people who use this fruit to adorn their bodies with elaborate creative ornamentations. In addition to the carefully warm well written story this book is beautifully illustrated with spectacular colorful photographs taken by Pascal Giacomini and Christina Mittermeier. After reading this book I have a greater appreciation for tattoos and the stories behind them. If you ever want to try a tattoo it is nice to know that there is an all natural temporary alternative. If you decide to order the Earth Jagua Body Art Set you will get this book, the temporary tattoo kit and a documentary film by artist Pascal Giacomini on his journey into the Amazon jungle. It is a wonderful gift set for all tattoo lovers and those who just want a glimpse of the world of body art.
