I would assume that, if you can eat it, you can put it on the outside of your body as well.

As someone who has decorated way too many cakes for my (waistline's) own good, I can tell you that food coloring is perfectly safe, and a b*tch to get off. Grin  So if you really want to do this, why not just dip a paintbrush into a jar of paste color, paint your design, leave it on for an hour or two for longevity, and wash it off?  I find stains on my hands as much as three days after I do a cake.  Plus, you have many choices for colors, the jars last forever, and each one is only $1.50 or so at Walmart.  And it comes in black.

I have mixed it with Noxzema for face paints for my kids - it doesn't stain (much) that way.

I'm guessing indigo or at least a shade of blue. Indigo has been used forever for making blue dyes; I'm talking millenia.

I've seen people who mix it with normal red henna to make black hair dye. Not sure about using it by itself. Superliminal's probably right, it'd probably be blue-ish.

I've dyed my hair with henna before and while it looked beautiful, it was a pain to clean up.  Picture your bathtub getting clogged up with mud that you cant touch oryour skin will turn red.  In all honesty, going to a hairdresser or getting a kit at the drugstore is best for hair.

As for indigo, just remember that it doesn't ever really wash out.  My friend dyed her hair (it was brown with streaks of blonde) and she was stuck with it for over a year because even the temporary colors are permenant.  After it started to fade, she had greenish colored hair that she was very unhappy with.

Hard to dye over, too, or so I hear. There are a few posts on here about henna and indigo I think.

Not always.  FD&C Red 3 is still approved for food and drug rug use but is no longer approved for cosmetic use.  F&C Red 3 should not be applied to the skin. (If you follow the government guidelines)

If you're going to ingest it, it should be safe on your skin.  Most of the cosmetics restrictions apply to putting things on your eyelids - it's safe to eat, but could be absorbed through your eyelids, the thinnest skin on your body, and harm your eyes.  Paint yourself with it, make your food purty, but avoid putting it on or in your eyes....that applies to lots of things that are safe to use and eat.
