Using natural Henna, not commercial dyes, for a long lasting tattoo.
Henna tattooing is a cultural practice that dates back over 5,000 years, Mehndi is the art of painting the body in ornate designs with henna.
To get the best results from your Henna experience make sure your skin is clean and free from dirt moisturisers and oils. Wear old clothes to the henna hub, henna will stain clothing on contact and you should also use old sheets and towels for the first 2 days of application. The paste must be allowed to dry completely (20-30 mins). The longer the dried paste remains on the skin the longer the design will last, recommended time 4-6 hours. Remove the paste with a layer of oil, or scratch off with fingers, DO NOT TAKE IT OFF WITH WATER! Avoid water contact for the first 24 hrs after the paste is removed, as the colour is still developing at this time. When the paste is first removed it will appear orange, it takes 24-48 hrs for the colour to finish darkening to a deep brown.
