dyes and does not contain bio-available lead acetate; therefore it is safe if you are pregnant. Henna plant leaves, are dried and crushed. The powder is mixed
with oil and lemon then applied to the skin.

to be more oily will have shorter lasting results. For a longer lasting henna tattoo apply the henna to a relatively non-oily
area of the skin. Some of the most popular modern
day tattoos are tribal tattoos, cross tattoos, butterfly tattoos, dragon tattoo, mehendi tattoos, star tattoo, flash tattoos,
henna tattoos and religious tattoos.
