Abstract: Four female patients were seen at the College of Dentistry, all with unusual localized gingival pigmentation. The histories revealed intentional gingival tattooing for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. INTRODUCTION: Variation in gingival color can be the result of a variety of causes ranging from gingivitis to racial pigmentation. Non racial causes of the variations can be local or systemic, and can vary from such systemic diseases as Addison's disease and Albright's syndrome leading to generalized discoloration or to lead or bismuth poisoning which usually gives a more localized change.
