black henna tattoos

by worried-mum

We were on holiday at a Keycamp holiday site in Tarragona called La Torre de la Sol.
All over the campsite there were posters displayed advertising 'henna tattoos' My daughterhad one of these tattoos applied on her 10th birthday August 7th 2007. 12 days later she has had a nasty allergic reaction to the tattoo & is now on anitbiotics & steroids & our GP says she may be scarred for life!!!!
Does anybody have any advice on how to file for compensation/damages for my daughter? I have read many articles on the net about these illegal black tattoos but nobody seems to suggest how to claim.
We took out holiday insurance when we booked the holiday.

Re: black henna tattoos

It is sad for your daughter, but as Ranger pointed out you probably gave permission. There may even have been information displayed warning of possible adverse reactions in some individuals (as with, for example, hair dyes). I am not sure if the use of black henna is 'illegal' as such, nor does it seem uncommon: http://www.andalucia.com/news/cdsn/2005-09-28.htm (scroll down).

I suggest you consider whether your daughter's reaction to the chemical dye might be an unfortunate incident rather than the result of deliberate illegality (which is unlikely to be advertised all over a tourist campsite). Seeking compensation/damages from the henna artist is likely to be a long-drawn-out legal process which may well be unsuccessful and may, in fact, result in your being out of pocket.

Your insurers will advise and possibly compensate, but are unlikely to fund any action you seek to take for damages in this case.

Travel Tips for Tarragona

Experience the local food,...

by AQG

Experience the local food, historic Roman sites, and white sand beaches -- this coastal city of the Mediterranean is a treasure chest of adventure and culture. Great food & wine ! The tapas bars serve the best fresh catch from the sea. The wine from the local regions rival La Rioja.

During the summer, the white sand beaches and clear blue water are warm to a touch...unspoiled and natural.

The town festivals of Santa Tecla and Sant Magi are beyond words to describe... Its a non-stop party...

Hanging out at Baixada Misericordia

by Ekaterinburg

I've included this street in the local customs section because I think it is one of the most iconic images of Tarragona and one you are definitely likely to come across when reading about the city. I saw this image in a travel feature about Tarragona earlier last summer and fell in love with it. In fact, though I'd been planing to visit the Roman ruins, it was this image that made me decide 'yes, I definitely have to see this'. The name Baixada Misericordia is a bit of a mystery to me. I think Baixa means lower in Catalan and Misericordia probably means mercy. It's a sloping street that goes round a corner and leads into Carrer Major which is the street that leads directly up to Placa del Seu and the cathedral . There are lots of steps and I think it's the kind of place that people would enjoy hanging out in and shooting the breeze. I didn't see much activity on it though, because the Sunday I visited there were very few people anywhere in the old town.

El Pont del Diable - Seeing is believing.

by Jerelis

In olden days, Tarragona dealt with its water problem by collecting rainwater, digging wells and engineering water courses that allowed a flow of water from higher elevations into the city. The Romans began the construction of their first aqueduct in Tarragona in 200 BC, bringing water to the distribution tanks (castella aquae) located around the city. They took advantage of the natural slope of the land, although in places it was necessary to built aqueducts. The aqueduct of Les Ferreres, better known as El Pont del Diable, is a good example of this and is probably the most famous stretch of this aqueduct and serves as one of the architectural symbols of the city.

Seeing it was believing it! It's trully amazing to even think about the fact how people must have done that all those years ago. So perfectly produced and productive for what it's exact purpose. We simply stood awe for a couple of minutes, just to admire its beauty and huge structure.

Directions:
It's about 4 kilometers outside Tarragona, follow the A7 to Valencia and you can see a well-signposted rest area.

Archeological Museum

by mikey_e

Tarragona prides itself on its Roman heritage, a patrimony that is evident on a grand scale throughout the city. It may seem that the number of monuments accessible to tourists out of doors makes an archeological museum rather redundant, but the National Museum of Archeology in Tarragona provides the visitor with useful insight into the history of the city and the trials and tribulations it has faced, from Roman settlement up to the damage caused by the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39. The collection is not huge, but there are quite a few write-ups on the significance of each of the city's monuments and the roof has spectacular views of the entire city and the coast.

la Rambla Nova

by balieyes

La 'Rambla Nova' is Tarragona’s main avenue. Part of the old city was demolished in 1854, when the old "Eixample" was constructed. The houses you can see at our left were constructed over the old walls. Josep Criville designed this district in 1855, La 'Rambla Nova' was the district’s main axis. The avenue is 45 meters wide and 700 long and it connects the old district (at our back) with the harbor
