Gaining in popularity is the Henna Tattoo. they are not permanent and use a paste called Henna which usually stains the top part of the skin. These tattoos are brown in color but can produce shades using a variety of mixes. Adding things to the paste such as coffee, fruits, etc., can achieve this effect, while adding sugar and oil gives it strength in its color and duration.
2-4 weeks is how long the average tattoo will last. it depends on the henna paste being used along with the care of the tattooed area.
Crushing the leaves of the henna plant is what makes this type of tattoo possible. Henna designs are abundant and have different design structure depending on what region it is affiliated with. You will see henna designs that have floral patterns that start out as swirls but come out as solid colors. The most popular include flowers, leafy tendrils, and flowery trails.
Henna tattoos are flexible and can be put on any part of the body. The hands are the most popular area and are usually placed on the wrist. The feet are difficult to place a henna on with the bottom parts needing to be decorated with different shades to compliment the tip of the toes.
The tattoos are not permanent and are painless but using black henna can harm your skin. Henna used for tattooing is brown while black henna contains harmful chemicals. it is best before going through the whole process of a henna tattoo to first apply a little to the skin to see if you have a reaction to the paste. Remember to not have a henna tattoo applied on with black henna. Henna colors vary depending on what ingredient is mixed in with the paste, the colors are usually brown, orange, coffee brown, and reddish- brown.
