Lovely Henna Pattern for Hand and Arm

Lovely Henna Pattern for Hand and Arm Read more: How much do henna tattoos cost Here is a very popular henna tattoos design that is the creation of the fine artist at I love the use of negative space in this design. Know that this is a photo of the paste on the skin..... when the paste comes off, the henna will be a deeper richer color on the fingers and become lighter as it moves up the hand and arm. This is some of the interesting aspects of henna tattoos , and one that make your efforts at aftercare most important. The longer you leave the paste on your skin, and the hotter the environment you are in.... the deeper the stain will be. As well, if you choose to keep your arm and hand warm after you scrape the henna off, apply olive oil to the finished design, you will help the henna develop to its darkest possible stain. Some clients will wear a stock to bed the first night to help heat up the design.

You may choose a smaller version, a pattern for the palm, inner arm, foot or ankle if you prefer. I do not do "joke" tattoos, tattoos to "trick" a friend, loved one or parent.

Henna Peacocks... the joyful diversity of henna tattoo designs

Henna Peacocks... the joyful diversity of henna tattoo designs Henna Peacocks Read more: Traditional henna pattern Here is a photo of a henna tattoo for the inner arm . This image is of a henna peacock riding a paisley wave... embellished and spaced to fit the clients arm. This design runs from above the wrist to a few inches below the elbow. Henna tattoo will give a good stain on this part of the body, but the color will be more brown than red as the skin on the inner arm is more fine. I used a lovely henna powder from Henna Sooq for this paste. The paste is stringy, wet, and makes very fine lines, as you can see. I sprayed the paste with a bit of lemon sugar to keep it moist and to help it stay on the skin. One of the lovely things about the henna peacock design is that is easy to apply to a variety of locations. While the first image is intricate and took about 10 minutes to complete, the next image you will see is one of a tiny peackcock henna on a tiny hand.
