Henna is a dye used for creating absolutely gorgeous temporary tattoos in a variety of different patterns. It is made from the plant Lawsonia inermis, which is also known as the mignonette tree, or Hina. This dye also has been used to draw patterns on fabrics like silk, leather, and wool, as well as to dye hair, but is most popularly known for its use in the creation of temporary body art. This art form has been a part of Arabic, Hindu and Chinese cultures for thousands of years. The art of using this dye is also called Henna, and in Hindi, it is referred to as Mehndi (Mehindi).

Removal


After the paste is applied, it is left to dry, and as it dries, the ink stains the skin, creating a beautiful temporary tattoo. The dried ink begins to chip away slowly, and after 3-4 hours the paste can be scraped off.

Customize


Many of the dyes are now custom made to leave a darker stain and dry faster. The tattoos only last for a few weeks, so for best color and longevity, it is advisable not to let water touch your hands while taking off the mehndi and for a number of hours after its been removed.

When first removed, the stain is lighter and brighter orange shade, though sometimes, ingredients like lemon and sugar are added while the mehndi dries to enhance the color.
