The blue star tattoo is a hoax that began in the late 70s and is still active today. The hoax involves a lick- and-stick tattoo that is rumored to be laced with LSD.
The blue star tattoo hoax was resurrected in Connecticut in 1992. It was eventually passed around the country and world via chain emails and has recently appeared on Facebook and other social media websites. Many schools even held evening assemblies to inform parents about the side effects of LSD.
Immediately after the rumor broke, many cartoon characters, especially Disney characters, were boycotted because they had blue stars on their outfits or accessories.
