Henna Tattoos – Almost The Real Thing
When it was discovered that permanent tattoos like the ink tattoo were not safe, many started to think twice before getting them, and since it is permanent, it is inevitable that you will get them long after they have gone out of fashion, so due to the desire of tattoo fashions, you end up with too many tattoos instead. Then temporary tattoos came into play and the henna tattoo became the best alternative.
Henna is a shrub-like plant that originated in the Middle East, it is originally called mehndi. Here mainly henna is tattooed. The henna leaves are then crushed and pulverized; they are mixed with eucalyptus or lavender oil and coffee or liquid tea to make a paste that looks like a cake, from which the henna tattoo design is then painted on the skin.
Therefore, tattooing with henna is safer and cheaper because it is made from organic materials. It is not injected, so there is no pain or discomfort. The tattooing process only takes an hour or less. But what makes them the best alternative for ink tattoos is the fact that they fade with time. It usually takes 4 to 6 weeks. But if you know the tricks and know-how to take care of the tattoo, it can last longer.
Artists differ in the mixture of their contents, some prefer eucalyptus instead of lavender or olive, and some may use more, others less. Similarly, some artists prefer coffee liquid over tea liquid. The blend has nothing to do with the quality of the result, but it has something to do with the reaction of the skin. The only health risk when tattooing with henna is skin irritation, although this is a rare case. Some people would get along better with eucalyptus, while others prefer lavender and olives, similar to coffee and liquid tea.
What makes the henna stain darker and lasts longer?
When the henna paste is applied, it leaves a stain that forms the design of the henna tattoo that was painted on the skin. At first, the stain is a light reddish-orange hue, after hours it darkens to a dark brown or reddish-brown hue, but if it is not done properly it will not become darkest. Then, 2 weeks later, it gradually lightens and fades.
The trick is easy, but it requires patience that many of us do not have. Start by making the toothpaste. After mixing all the components, leave the toothpaste to stand for 6 to 12 hours until it becomes a toothpaste. Henna darkens on hotter skin, so you can spray it on your skin before you apply it and then let it dry for another 6 to 12 hours before washing it. To keep it warm, it is advisable to blow-dry it with a hairdryer or hairdryer and then cover it with tissue paper to prevent it from discoloring and soaking with sweat, and then wrap it with tape. Leave it like this, and after 12 hours you will be rewarded with a great result, the stain will darken in its darkest shade and last longer than usual.
The area where the henna is tattooed also has something to do with the fact that it lasts longer. Body parts that are exposed and constantly washed, such as the face, hands, feet, ankles, neck, and arms, fade faster than non-exposed areas such as the back, chest, abdomen, and thighs. Henna also darkens better in dark-skinned people than in light-skinned people. Although it looks better on lighter skin, it has shortened the time it takes to maintain the tattoo than in dark-skinned people.
The process of preparation and post-application takes much longer than the application of henna tattoo design, which can take only an hour or less depending on the size and design of the tattoo. But believe me, if you do it right, it is worth the wait!
