    • Henna Tattooing
      (Mehndi)
    • What's IN THE NAME?
      Henna tattooing is just the slang term for a process called Mehndi. This art has become increasingly popular with western culture and is now commonly referred to with the slang term.
      HENNA
    • What is henna?
      Henna is a plant that grows in the tropical and subtropical regions of Australia, Southern Asia (Including India), and northern Africa. It requires a good amount of rain and lots of humidity. It is a green, leafy plant that grows from about 6.5 ft to 20 ft at full maturity.
    • Egyptian orgins
      Henna Tattooing started in Egypt with origins dating back almost 5,000 years! Egyptians used to decorate the bodies of their deceased pharaohs with henna.
      There were many tattoos they used, and each had a different meaning. Some tattoos gave the pharaohs courage in the afterlife while others gave them guidance.
    • History of henna
      Henna tattoos, or the more traditional term, Mehndi, has been used for over 5,000 years. It started in Egypt, but evolved and became popular all over the Middle East. It was used mainly for ceremonies or life changing events such as marriages or childbirth. Henna has always been very popular in India.
    • DIFFERENT PATTERNS
      There are many, many different designs for henna tattoos. They differ in many ways including color, size, and difficulty. Here are two examples of the ranging difficulty of the tattoos.
      Complex And Intricate
      Simple
    • Henna today
      Henna tattoos have become very popular for western culture. Beachgoers are surrounded by booths for the tattoos. But the tattoos that have become popular with today’s culture have been downsized quite a bit and simplified. Now, a simple butterfly might adore a teenage girl’s ankle rather than the very complex traditional Mehndi tattoos. But, none the less, the ancient Mehndi designs are still used in the Middle East.
    • Application of henna
      The application of henna is time consuming and difficult. Here are the steps for the Appling of a henna tattoo. Then we’ll show you some pictures of us giving ourselves henna tattoos.
      1. You grind the henna leaf into a fine powder.
      2. You mix it with homemade materials or a pre-made oil (we went with the pre-made oil kit)
      3. You mix the substance until it has the consistency of toothpaste.
    • 4. You store the henna paste in a refrigerator for about a week.
      5. You put the henna paste in a bottle of some kind with a fine nozzle.
      6. You squeeze the paste out of the bottle onto your skin with a stencil or free hand.
      7. You wrap the paste on your skin gently with a paper towel.
      8. When the paste is dry, peel it off your skin.
      9. In a few hours, the tattoo will slowly appear on you skin!
      (CONTINUED)

    • Henna safety tips
      Black henna can be very dangerous. It can infect and eat away at your skin. Henna is not black! Black henna contains PPD, a dangerous chemical that is illegal if used on the skin. If you are interested in getting a henna tattoo, be careful where you get your supplies. You want to research the supplier throughly and make sure they are reliable.
      BE CAREFUL!!
