We have kits with everything you need, a kit especially for children, refill supplies, even a how-to book. What is the history of henna tattoos, you ask? The art of the henna tattoo has been practiced in India, Africa, and the Middle East for centuries, where the henna plant is believed to bring love and good fortune, and to protect against evil. It is a well established art form. Henna body art is traditionally practiced for wedding ceremonies, during important rites of passage, and in times of joyous celebration. How does it work? A paste is made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant. This paste is applied to your skin and, when removed several hours later, it leaves beautiful markings on your skin. The tattoo fades naturally over 1 to 3 weeks. If you are truly in a hurry and willing to use a motif designed by someone else, try a Maís India Temporary Tattoo. These are press-apply tattoos.They are safe and come with simple instructions.
