Simple Henna Tattoo for the Feet

Simple Henna Tattoo for the Feet When coming for a henna tattoo on the foot , please be sure to wear sandals that leave enough room to fit the kind of tattoo you want. This photo is a good example of a sandal that leaves enough room to place a small henna tattoo that flatters the foot as well as the toes. Luckily, the little peacock design also is flattering to the golden sandal my client chose to wear. When getting a tattoo on the foot, it is important to leave the sandal on, so that I am sure not to draw your design too close to the shoe.. that way the henna will not rub off with wear. If you want a tattoo that covers more of the top of the foot, then a little slide on shoe, or mule might be a better choice. This henna tattoo cost $15 dollars and took about 15 minutes from start to dry time. Stop by The Midnight Sun this Saturday between 11:00 Am & 5:00 PM for your henna tattoo. We will be leaving early this Saturday!

Henna Tattoo Design for the Back of the Hand.

Henna Tattoo Design for the Back of the Hand. This is an example of the kinds of henna tattoo you can order at The Midnight Sun, 1055 Park Street, Jacksonville, Florida, 32204. Artists are almost always available on Saturdays, and appointments are helpful. The is a "chef's choice" style, which means the customer decides how much she want to spend, and the style of henna she likes. The henna artist then creates a unique pattern, base on traditional designs, to fit your taste & your budget. This particular henna cost $20 and was drawn to include the clients jewelry in the pattern. You can see that there is a good bit of negative space in the design, which I think makes it visually very attractive. This pattern was also drawn with the wetter paste, so the henna did take a bit longer to dry on the skin. We used 2009 Jamila Henna, fresh off the plane for this tattoo. We'll see if we get a photo of the finished color.

Henna Pattern for Back of Hand

Henna Pattern for Back of Hand Here is a photo of a traditional henna tattoo design taken from a book of patterns I bought about 5 years ago. My client really like the stupa decoration at the wrist, as well as the full hand pattern and intricate design. This pattern took about 35 minutes to apply. The henna paste I am using this year is a bit wetter than pastes I have used in the past, so the henna flows freely from the cone and takes a bit longer to dry. This slower dry time results in a better finished color, although it does require that you are careful with your tattoo about 15 minutes longer than last year's paste.

Full Palm Henna Tattoo - paste on & paste off

Full Palm Henna Tattoo - paste on & paste off This is a photo on an original henna tattoo design for the full palm. The pattern started and the wrist and was worked down onto the palm and finally the fingers. This henna tattoo was done with a fairly wet paste, so there was plenty of time for the henna to be absorbed into the skin. This wet paste yielded a good finished color as you will see below. Here is a photo of the henna tattoo with the paste off the skin. As you can see (click the photo for a larger view) the henna stains different parts of the hand different shades of red to reddish brown. This henna paste has only been off the skin for 24 hours, so it will take another 24 hours for the final color to show up. Many people want to know how long a henna tattoo will last. Spirit Vision Henna uses fine, natural ingredients with no chemical additives. The paste is made to give the darkest color possible, but aftercare is really important to getting a long lasti
