The palm is another excellent place to put henna tattoo as it is still a bit early in the year, and we don't have the hot temperatures necessary to give the darkest color.
Henna on the palm of the hand always gives the darkest stain, and depending on your skin tone, you may expect any color from a dark red, black cherry red or a deep rich brown.
Henna takes best on the palms as we have more pores there, so more places for henna to penetrate the skin.
The inner arm, or the outer arm as shown in the previous post, will also give good color.
As the weather warms up, it will be easier to put henna in other places and hope for a nice dark stain.
For those new to henna, this is a photo of the henna paste on the skin. Henna is not black when finished.
If it rains this Saturday, some care will be necessary to ensure your henna tattoo stays dry until the paste has stained the skin. Curious? Visit my FAQ page before stopping by The Midnight Sun this Saturday, 3/23/13 for your henna tattoo.
