Temporary Skin Art for Pregnant Women
Did you know that in some regions of the world pregnant women are given temporary skin art? Of course, it may come from a different culture than the one you grew up in, and for some people, it may not make sense. But in this world of 24-hour news channels, the World Wide Web, and the ability to travel almost anywhere, it is easy to understand that the whole world is a mosaic of different cultures. In a world this big, nobody can expect everyone to be the same. Besides, the world has been around for a very long time, and this is a euphemism. So it is understandable that we all have many traditions and cultures.
We have seen a lot of skin art in history, especially henna tattoos. To come back to the example of pregnant women, it is a little surprising that in some Arab countries like Morocco it is a cultural tradition to apply temporary skin art as soon as the pregnant woman turns 7 years old. Another temporary skin art is also applied during the wedding and after the baby is born.
Henna tattoos are generally the preferred choice for cultures and traditions that embrace these milestones with temporary body art. This has worked well in the past, especially since they had no other options at that time. They can be done with the henna plant, which was widely spread in their areas.
Today, temporary skin art for cultural practices is still a tradition. However, the use of temporary tattooing methods as a form of self-expression is becoming increasingly popular. The processes have also changed. Although henna is still very popular, fake tattoos are now the preferred option. It is now very easy to find a good manufacturer who can do it for you.
But it is good to know that these cultural practices are not forgotten. They are part of our world history, and it is only right that people pay homage to them. Alanis Morissette, for example, recently posted a photo on her Twitter account. The photo shows her very pregnant belly covered with a henna tattoo. There are also hands around the 36-year-old woman who is about to become a mother. Her hands are also covered with henna tattoos.
The singer confirmed that she does it to follow the ritual. She was also seen smiling, which clearly shows that she likes the temporary image of skin art.
However, those who want to emulate her must be careful. The FDA has not yet approved the use of certain types of henna as a skin art form. They can be used as hair dye, but the FDA draws the line at direct skin contact.
Fortunately, there is a better option. Fake tattoos have outgrown henna for many reasons when it comes to skin art.
First, it is safer, especially if you ask a reputable manufacturer, as they only use FDA-approved inks and adhesives. There are also fewer problems because unlike henna dyes it is very easy to use. With henna, the paste is applied in complicated patterns, and you have to wait until it is completely dry before removing it and the colored skin comes out from underneath. You must be careful not to get stains during this waiting period to keep your designs sharp. For fake tattoos, thirty seconds with a damp cloth and you are ready. They are also easier to remove, which makes them “temporary”. With henna, the design fades naturally in one to three weeks, but temporary transfer tattoos can be removed in seconds with baby oil, alcohol, or even homemade tape. So if you want to pay homage to a ritual involving temporary skin art, a better idea is to use the safer and more accessible option of fake tattoos.
