The ancient form of henna art is in a tradition out of India, Africa and then the middle East. Humans have decorated their bodies with henna for over 5000 years. Now we in the West are gaining self expression through this art form. Our natural brown henna tattoo application is safe, natural, painless, and is allegen- free, so we can apply it to the most sensitive of skins. We do not offer black henna because it contains chemicals which can burn the skin. Henna is derived from a natural plant source, and we do not add any chemicals to this .
Henna designs are usually applied to the hands and the feet, as these areas stain darker than any other body part. Traditionally in India, henna tattoos are part of the pre wedding ritual, ensuring longevity of the love between bride and groom. In North Africa, it is thought to bring good luck.
WLFP professional Henna artists have experience sharing joy through the application and wearing of the special art of henna. They apply the tattoos with the utmost care and attention to detail. We cater to the individual , ensuring that designs are unique and that individual personalities are expressed.
The henna powder (derived from ground leaves) is mixed with sugar and lemon. We apply henna tattoos with syringes and fingers. Once the design is drawn onto the skin, it will take approximately one hour to dry. Thereafter, the stain darkens the longer the henna is left of the skin, and should be left for around 4-6 hours to darken after the initial application. The initial stain is a bright orange, which transforms to a rust brown. Hands and feet will be the darkest and most enduring, though we can apply to other areas of the body. The rule is the longer it is left on, the longer it lasts.Generally henna tattoos will last 3 weeks on hands and feet and 1-2 weeks on other areas of the body.view the Traditional Henna Tattoos Gallery
