This is when temporary tattoos came in and henna tattoo became the best alternative choice.

Henna is a shrub like plant that originated in the center East Asia, it is actually originally called Menhdi. This is primarily where henna tattoo is made from. Henna leaves are pounded and powdered then; it is actually blended with eucalyptus or lavender oil and coffee or tea liquid to make it in to a paste, which is sort of a pastel that will then be used for painting the henna tattoo design on the skin.

Thus, henna tattoo is safer and cheaper because it is created from organic materials. It is really not injected so there is not any pain or discomfort at all. It requires but one hour or less to do the tattooing process. But, what caused it to be the most effective alternative for ink tattoos is the fact it fades away with time. Normally, it can last for 4 to six or seven weeks. But, once you learn the tricks on carrying it out and the way to look after the tattoo then, it may last longer than that.

Artist vary within their content mixture, some prefer eucalyptus than lavender or olive and some could use more although some prefer it less. Likewise, some artists prefer coffee liquid over tea liquid. Mixture has nothing to do with the standard of the result but, it has something to do the skin reaction. The only real health risk of henna tattoo is skin irritation although, this is a rare case. Some people would do better with eucalyptus while other prefers lavender and olive, similarly with coffee and tea liquid.

What makes henna stain darker and what makes it stay longer? When henna paste is used, it leaves a stain forming the henna tattoo design which was painted on the skin. At first the stain is a light shade of red-orange, after hours it darkens to a shade of dark brown or reddish brown but, if not done efficiently it can not turn into its darkest. Then, 2 weeks later it gradually lightens and fades away.

The key is straightforward but, it deserves patience in which a lot of us do not possess. It starts with making the paste, after mixing all of the components make sure to let the paste stay for 6 to 12 hours until it turns to toothpaste-like. Henna stains darker on warmer skin so, you may steam the skin first before application and after that let it dry for an additional 6 to 12 hours before washing away the paste. To help keep it warm you should dry it having a blower or even a hair dryer then cover it using a tissue paper to prevent smudging and soaking with sweat then wrap it up with a tape. Leave this way and after 12 hours you will be rewarded with a great result, the stain will darken into its darkest shade plus, it is going to last longer than usual.

The area where the henna is tattooed also offers something to do with keeping it longer. Areas of the body which are exposed and constantly washed like face, hands, feet, ankles, neck and arms fades away faster compared to those areas which can be iyfbzf like back, chest, belly and upper legs. Henna also darkens better on dark skinned people than on fair skinned. Although, it seems better over a fairer skin but, they have shorten duration of keeping the tattoo than dark skinned people.

The whole process of the preparation and following the application take a lot more than the application of the henna body art wherein it could usually take an hour or less depending on the size and the appearance of the tattoo. But, believe me when you do it properly, it really is well worth the wait!
