Application & Staining
Henna body art (sometimes referred to as henna tattoos or temporary tattoos) is fun and pain-free. No needles are used. Island Girl applies henna on the skin freehand - without stencils - similar to decorating a cake. Sometimes it tickles:) Cosmetic-grade, biodegradable glitter and glitter gel are available to adorn your new henna design.
After several hours, the paste is removed leaving behind a stain that takes approximately 2 days to reach its darkest color. It can last up to a few weeks, and gradually fades as the skin naturally exfoliates.
Since henna only stains the keratin, or top layers of skin, the duration of the stain is determined by body temperature and chemistry, skin type, lifestyle, where the henna is applied and how well it is taken care of.
Tougher, less oily skin will hold the stain longer. This makes the palms of the hands and soles of the feet the best place to apply henna. The further away from the palms and soles you get, the lighter the stain and faster it fades.
