Get a Henna Tattoo

COMPLETED BY 170

LISTED 187

Fifteen reasons to get a henna tattoo.

  1. First of all, henna is temporary.

  2. If you’re careful and don’t put too much water on it, it can stay for up to 3 weeks.

  3. It’s perfect if you’re commitment phobic towards body art.

  4. You don’t need an expert to put it on you.

  5. Seriously. Even a bunch of dots can look pretty with henna.

  6. Or a cute little succulent.

  7. Even a tiny musical note.

  8. It (not unlike humans) looks beautiful in all colours.

  9. Henna is applied before all happy occasions in South Asian countries as well as the Middle East.

  10. Like weddings and baby showers.

  11. It’s made from crushed leaves of the Henna plant and is super safe and organic.

  12. I mean you can put this stuff on babies!

  13. And plates. It looks great on plates too.

  14. There’s absolutely no pain in this kind of tattoo.

  15. Except for the pain of keeping you hand still while it’s applied and dried.

Well I'm Indian so I always wear mending, but it's nice to have done something to tick of a bucket list. Henna/Mendhi is so easy to get a hold of and it looks really pretty so everyone should try it :)

I finally got it done in NYC in Jackson heights with very little fanfare, the money and time spent were very worth it and if you are wondering how I got the color to darken up I used Vicks vapor rub ;-)

I got my first henna way before this and it cost me 25 dollars for the hand and up the arm. I got a genuine one it lasted for 3 weeks. I loved it. I get them whenever I can now and people always compliment me on my Mandi.
