For those who don't already know, Henna Tattoos are non-permanent. They are created by using a Henna paste product to paint a design on the top layer of skin. Traditional henna is drawn in delicate designs on the hands and feet. Nowadays, you can find any type of design on any part of the body. After the paste is applied to the skin, it must sit for several hours to stain. The dyes in this paste actually bind with keratin in skin, fingernails and hair to dye the skin. Unlike modern tattoos, Henna tattoos are not portrayed in a full range of color, but rather in different shades of reds, browns and blacks. They fade with time but usually last on average for 2-4 weeks.
I've never had a Henna Tattoo before. They are so beautiful, though, that I am considering maybe getting a small one on my hand this summer.
Have you ever had a Henna Tattoo?
