Henna is a natural type of body
art that is a temporary and
safe alternative to get a real tattoo on any part of your body.
The artists of henna tattoo make use of the natural ink of henna
made form the powder of leaves of a henna plant. The artist
makes a paste of the henna powder and paints an attractive foot
henna design on your foot, or any other body part where you want
a tattoo. The tradition of tattooing with henna has been in
practice for thousands of years. The tombs of pharaoh in Egypt
have also some traces of hennas existence, and it is still
popular as a natural tattooing process today.
Before the application of henna
on the skin, you must make sure
that your skin is not allergic to it. You can do this by testing
a very small amount of henna paste on your body and see if there
are any allergic reactions visible on it. Although henna rarely
cause any allergic reaction in people, because it is completely
herbal and natural and quite safe on any kind of skin, but it
better to be on the safer side especially if you have a
sensitive kind of skin. Once you have made sure that your skin
is not allergic to henna, you or the henna tattoo artist may
begin to work with it on your skin.
Although the colors of henna
tattoos are limited to shades of
green, red, black or brown, there is no limit to attractive
designs, patterns and images which can be formed with henna.
You can also make use of aids like design books, stencils, bindis,
transfer tattoos and faux jewelery and make some striking foot
henna design on your feet. The colour of the henna ink that
comes on your skin also depends largely on the tone and type
your skin. You can also check, if you will get the desired
result or not, by doing a patch test first.
