It is traditional to put henna on the palms. If you have never had the experience, a soothing relaxing, aromatherapy moment.. please consider bringing a driver with you for a traditional henna tattoo.
It is pampering in the extreme... and the gorgeous henna tattoo left once the paste is removed is quite exotic, and exciting. This is a photo of henna paste on the skin.
Under this black paste, henna, a heat-activated body dye, is penetrating layers of the skin. The longer you leave the paste on, and the hotter you get.. the darker the finished color.
There are all sorts of aftercare tricks to give you the deepest possible stain.. but most folks choose a simple henna.. and thus it is not as important to push for dark color.
Bridal henna is another matter... but you may visit other posts on this blog to learn more about that. If you are interested in henna tattoo, either for yourself, a party, wedding, gallery opening or other event, please feel welcome to call Ann George at Spirit Vision Henna.
