Henna Tattoo Design Tips

While applying henna dye to the skin to create a temporary tattoo, there are a variety of tattoo designs which can be used. There are a variety of types and styles of tattoos and therefore it is important to use a stencil or an outline to have a general idea of the shape and size of the tattoo, in the case that you are an inexperienced artist. This can help to reduce the mistakes which are made while the tattoo is applied, as henna will stain the skin instantly and therefore cause the ink to appear on various parts of the skin.

Have the design chosen before the individual is having the henna tattoo applied to the skin, this can help to also reduce the mistakes that are made. Remember, the henna tattoo should be applied as a paste and will dry to the skin, leaving the impact of the ink on the skin. Therefore, the ink should be left to dry until it has set into the skin and will last an average of two to four weeks before coming off of the skin.
