Henna tattoos are a temporary body art; so they’re not supposed to be as labyrinthine as permanent tattoos…or at least you would think. From body art kits at drug stores to henna tattoo artists ready to print something on your skin at tropical locations, these tattoos have become so popular that few people seek enough information before getting them.
Henna tattoos are marketed as natural, and that’s one of the reasons why their popularity skyrocketed. However, there have been cases where the wrong type of henna was used or a person who is not fit for this ink put it on their skin. These and other risky cases can occur with henna tattoos and that’s why you need to learn as much as possible before trying it out. We offer henna tattoos near Atlanta GA.
Henna is technically a plant (flowery shrub). The leaves of the plant produce a pigment (lawsone) when dried and crushed and this is made into a dye. The pigment in the leaves leave a rusty red-brown color when it gets into contact with your skin and that’s how you get to have an instant tattoo.
Henna tattoos are called temporary tattoos for a reason; they will fade with time. Depending on your skin type and type of henna, a tattoo can last for two to four weeks. There’s no way to remove the tattoo except to let it fade naturally so think carefully before booking your teen for an appointment at magical waxing if she can’t have them for a few weeks.
Generally you can use henna on any part of your body except for your lips. Just remember that it will leave a reddish brown stain even when used on your eyebrows. Like it has been said earlier, henna is dried leaves so when it’s mixed to be used as dye it becomes a paste. The paste is usually left to dry for a few minutes (whether on your kin or your eyebrows) before being peeled out.
Henna tattooing has been part of some traditions in South Asia and Africa for generations. They are used on expectant mothers and new brides to symbolize a new phase of life or a certain transformation. Still, this doesn’t mean it’s safe for everyone. Children and people with sensitive skin should consult their dermatologist first before trying a henna tattoo. We offer henna tattoos in Norcross and Tucker.
Not surprisingly, henna tattoo kits have become famous with many teenagers keen to save with these temporary tattoos.
