Henna Tattoo Design for the Back of the Hand.

henna pattern for back of handThis photo is an example of a custom, or "chef's choice" henna tattoo.

As you can see, Margaret is wearing a beautiful ring, which is quite large. As henna tattoo is an adornment, and used to make a woman's hand look even more beautiful, a free hand henna tattoo was created to compliment this turquoise stone.

This tattoo took about 10 minutes to complete. I used Jamila henna powder, which is always shipped fresh & finely sifted, and hand rolled cone to give the fine lines you see in this tattoo.

You might also notice the shading used on the flower at the wrist. Two coats of lemon/sugar glaze were applied to help the paste stick to the skin as long as possible, thus providing a deep, rich color.

This kind of quick tattoo costs $20 to apply. You will receive a consent form and aftercare instructions with every tattoo, every time. The henna paste is made fresh, contains only natural ingredients & gentle essential oils. Many people report that the experience of henna is just as lovely as the tattoo they receive.
