ABOUT HENNA TATTOO
What Is Henna?
Henna is a small flowering shrub. Henna leaves are dried and turned into a fine powder. That powder can be used to dye hair or skin temporarily.
Henna body art has been used to adorn women’s bodies in a variety of ceremonies for thousands of years. It’s still used in many wedding ceremonies among various cultures.
Henna Tattoos for Teens
The tattoos are generally an intricate design. They will fade in time, about 2-4 weeks, depending on the type of henna that has been used.
It is close to impossible to remove except through natural fading, so if you allow your teen to get a henna tattoo, know that it will be there for a while. Some people say you can speed up the fading by applying hydrogen peroxide to the area daily. But, the results on that are fairly mixed.
