This is a lovely henna tattoo on the back of this woman. This tattoo, featuring a nice cascading wreath of flowers is especially striking in the one colour depiction, and the brown of this tattoo.
Henna is made from all natural plant substances and has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, and other things. Henna tattoos are temporary, and a great way to test out your tattoo design.
First, download a design from one of your favourite tattoo sites, then instead of using permanent ink, use henna. Walk around with your tattoo – how do you feel? Does it bother you when people stare?
Do you like it after a few weeks
Tattoo regret is a common thing, so make sure to spend time with your tattoo before you go permanent. Tattoos made with real ink cannot be removed – they are yours for life.
NB. Don’t use black henna or neutral henna. These are not made from plants and can be bad for you.
