Henna Tattoos

Henna: The application of henna paste to the skin in order to make a design for cultural, religious, or special occasion adoration is called MENDHI. Commonly used in wedding ceremonies in Middle Eastern countries, the popularity is growing in United States as a way to express yourself through design, on a temporary basis.

The skin is cleansed with lemon juice, to remove the natural oils, and body lotions. The henna paste is a mixture of the dried henna plant, eucalyptus oil, and lemon juice, and is applied with a fine applicator bottle to the skin in many different choices of design. As the paste dries it stains the skin. When it falls off in a few hours, the design will be orange, which after 24 hours will turn into a beautiful sienna brown. The darkness of the stain is determined by the person's skin tone, as well as where the henna is applied. The palms and tops of the hand, and tops and bottom of the feet take the stain the darkest. The arms and legs are next, with the torso, taking the stain the least.

As the henna dries, the paste flakes off, and it is recommended that you do not get the design wet for 24 hours. After that, in order to protect the design, apply olive oil to the design before and after a shower, bath, or swim. Avoid chlorine if you can. The henna design will last between 1 and 2 weeks depending on the care you give it.
