Henna Tattoo Click here to view image Henna tattoos, also known as Mehndi, is another form of temporary tattoo. Coming from a south Asian tradition, henna uses a paste made from the powdered leaves of the Henna plant, Lawsonia inermis. Its active dye, Lawsone, binds with the keratin in skin, fingernails, and hair. Traditional henna is drawn in delicate patterns on the hands and feet, but modern henna is applied in all sorts of designs anywhere on the body. Unlike other forms of temporary tattoos, henna does not allow for a full range of colors but only shades of reds, browns, and near-blacks. The paste is applied and left on the skin for several hours to stain. The stain will gradually fade away as the skin sheds. Henna tattoos can last days to over a month depending on application and aftercare. However, caution should be taken as many products labeled black henna are misleading. Fast-staining "black henna" can contain para-phenylenediamine (PPD) which can cause allergic reactions and scarring. For more details regarding henna, please refer- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henna Instructions(After applying Henna)- When it gets dry, it will fall off itself and leave the colour on the skin. Avoid putting water on the skin for atleast 24 hours and apply Vicks Vaporub or Olive oil in the night and keep it warm. Henna tattoo will last for couple of days depending on the use of water on that part of the skin, the less water you put on the skin, the longer it will last. On an average it will last for about 10 days. Note- We use only the original(purely herbal) Henna paste which will give you red, brown and near black colour. We don't use "Black Henna" as it contains chemicals and can be harmful for your skin.
