My friend hired a henna artist for her birthday party, and needless to say it was a big hit. I chose this cute little owl because it reminded me of myself (note the confused yet slightly creepy looking eyes, that’s me!)
While some may find henna a little overrated, I think that as long as a pro is drawing your design, they’re well worth it. Here are a few quick tips on henna tattoos based on my experience.
~Right before the henna dries completely, spray it with a blend of lemon juice and sugar
~When it dries, don’t peel it off, let it fall off by itself
~Don’t get the tattoo wet for 24 hours
~After the dry henna falls off, it will leave behind a light yellow stain that will darken in color over the next 2 to 3 days to a red-toned brown
~The henna tattoo will last about 2.5 weeks with proper care
~Before and after you take a shower/go swimming, put some olive oil on the henna
Have you ever gotten a henna tattoo? What did you think of it?
