Using henna for body art has been practiced for over 5000 years. It is a time honored tradition among various cultures of the world. The people of ancient Egypt and India used this form of temporary tattoo for religious ceremonies, wedding festivals, and for simple body adornment.The intricate designs can symbolize passages of life and are also be applied simply for their beauty.
Getting a henna tattoo is preferred by many people over a traditional tattoo because it is not painful, there is less chance of adverse reactions, and it is not permanent. Being temporary is appealing to many people because it allows them to change designs.
A henna tattoo that is properly taken care of can last for a few weeks. Avoid getting the tattoo wet for the first day after it is applied and do not get oil, detergents, or bleach on it at any time to prolong its life.
