Woman gets funny Henna tattoo, bad reaction causes it to stay

While on vacation in Mexico, a woman and two of her family members got temporary Henna tattoos based off the movie We're The Millers, but after having a bad reaction, the tattoo has not gone away.

What was supposed to be temporary tattoo and a fun memory with family has turned into a permanent mistake for one woman.

Ashley Burke went on vacation to Mexico with her family where she and two others got Henna tattoos. 

The tattoos read in large print, "No Ragrets" across their chests. "Ragrets" is spelled wrong on purpose because it is from the film, We're The Millers, where a character got the same tattoo.

The woman thought it would be a funny joke, since Henna tattoos are temporary tattoos.

But after she had a bad reaction to the Henna used at the resort in Cozumel, the letters did not fade away.

It's been more than a week since they returned from vacation and the letters are still dark across her chest.

"Henna is not black. Never has been black…never will be black. If anyone is ever offering you black henna temporary tattoos, it can have lasting effects. Just protect your family and research everything." Burke said on Wednesday.

The resort did apologize to her in an email on Wednesday. It also promised to pay for any medical expenses she may have. 

Burke said her other family members that got the tattoo had reactions and their Hennas faded completely.
