‘Blindspot’ Beauty Fears Toxic Tattoos

Jaimie Alexander believes she was being poisoned by the fake tattoos she wore for her hit NBC thriller “Blindspot”!

After suffering a pulmonary infection and illnesses while shooting the drama, Jaimie was “convinced the ink is toxic and making her sick,” said a source.

She could be right.

The FDA has issued warnings that temporary tattoos labeled as “black henna” or “pre-mixed henna” could be dangerous.

Jaimie, 31, plays a Jane Doe, who wakes up naked in a duffel bag in Times Square, with no memory of who she is or how she got there.

The only clues to her identity are hundreds of mysterious tattoos that cover almost every inch of her skin — and provide vital information on crimes.

Engaged to actor Peter Facinelli, Jaimie spent up to seven hours every day of shooting having the tattoos applied.

“The process starts with medical adhesive applied to her skin,” said the source.

“The tattoos are on sheets of paper that are placed face down on her skin and then wet.”

There are ingredients in some fake tattoos, research has shown, that can cause “allergic and chronic inflammatory reactions,” said the source.

Production on the show was reportedly halted in early November after three makeup artists were fired.

A spokesman for Warner Brothers, which produces the series, denied the firings had anything to do with Jaimie.
