Henna Tattoo on your Back

Henna tattoo on the backThis 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.

Show Off Your Angel Wing Tattoos This Summer



Angel wing tattoos are hot. Sported across the back angel wing tattoos make the ultimate statement.

We know these angel wings aren’t real – but what a great idea it is to henna your tattoo on your back for the summer. This way you can really try your tattoo on for size before you make the ultimate commitment.

You can check out how your tattoo looks with all your clothes – whether wearing a tshirt, halter top, bikini or a bareback dress. You can test the reaction you get from friends or colleagues or bosses when they see you with your new tattoo, and more importantly, how you feel when faced with other people’s reactions.

Best of all you can check out different angel wing patterns – to see which one you feel good in. It’s all about feeling good in your own skin.

I love this tattoo design– it’s beautiful because of its loose filigree fairy like drawing. Very irreverent and whimsical. Upper back tattoos on the are just as sexy as lower back tattoos.

Remember, tattoo regret is pretty common, so take your time when choosing your tattoos. That’s why lifetime memberships with Tattoo galleries are great – there’s no rushing when it comes to choosing your tattoo – so less chance of regretting your decision.
