When permanent tattoos like ink tattoo was found out to be unsafe, many started to think twice before having them and since it is permanent, you are bound to wear them long after they are no longer fashionable and so for the desire of tattoo fashion you end up having too many tattoos instead. This is when temporary tattoos came in and henna tattoo became the best alternative choice.
Henna tattoo applications or design, also known as 'mehendi' are popular form of temporary tattoos. Famous for their creative eye-catching designs, henna tattoos make use of a paste from the powdered leaves of Lawsonia Inermis, the Henna Plant. The dye of henna, called lawsone, blends very well with the keratin in the skin, hair and fingernails.
An important thing to remember here is that one must be aware of their allergies. Sometimes the oils in henna paste cause rashes and other allergic reactions, to avoid such situations these people can use purified henna. Traditionally henna was applied to the hair, foot and hands and mostly during special events like weeding and other ritualistic events. These days the trend is increasing solely because of the quality and advantages of painting the body with henna over other forms of body art. Painting the body with henna portrays creativity and delicacy.
For many years, tattoo and piercing have become two popular ways of body painting. Although many people like these, they actually do hurt, so we must be totally ready to do this. Now, there is a new popular way of body painting. It is favored because it creates a beautiful look to our body without giving such a pain. This way is called henna.
Henna (or 'Mehndi', the Indian name) is made from the henna plant (Lawsonia Inermis). The leaves of the plant are dried and ground. The powder gets mixed with water and you get a sort of green-brownish mud. If you put that mud on your skin, let it harden, and then peel it off, you will notice it has left an orange color.
