Body Dye?

I want to do something very Henna-like, but I want it to be blue. Has anyone used Gentian Violet to dye their skin? It's normally used for thrush in babies and nursing mothers, and it turns everything it touches bright blue, including skin. I just wonder if there's anything wrong with using it to draw on the skin, if it would be an irritant on a large portion of skin, or if it would fade quicker in the drier, sunnier desert.

Anyone?
