Henna

Q: Where does henna come from?
Henna comes from a small shrub brush that grows about 4 feet high called lawsonia inermis. It is grown in various tropical climates of Asia and Africa.

Q: Does getting a henna tattoo hurt?
No. In fact, henna has a cooling, refreshing effect on the skin, most people comment that it is very relaxing. Henna not only feels good, but it also has a therapeutic aroma. The henna is applied topically with an applicator and the process of getting a tattoo is like putting frosting onto a cake. Your skin absorbs the henna so that there is no breaking of the skin.

Q: Is it temporary?
Yes. A henna tattoo will stain the skin from 1-4 weeks. Generally most tattoos last two weeks. The variation of the stain depends on where you put the henna design, where the pores are larger, the henna will absorb more, therefore leaving a deeper, longer stain. Then when the henna fades, it fades completely, leaving no marks on the skin.

Q: What color will the henna stain appear as on my skin?
The henna will develop into a rich, dark brown. When the henna paste is removed from the skin, the color’s first stage is a pale orange that develops into a reddish brown within the first 24 hours. Within the following 24 hours, the reddish brown darkens to its starkest shade of a rich brown. Gradually, the color will fade completely.

Q: When and where would it be appropriate to do henna tattooing?
From formal holiday parties to casual birthday parties, henna tattoos are great for any type of gathering. Spice up your next office party or treat your significant other to a surprise treat with a unique henna tattoo custom designed to fit your personality.
