Temporary Henna Tattoo Kits

Henna tattoo kits are a perfect way of starting to experiment with longer lasting temporary tattoos.

Whereas ordinary stick on temporary tattoos will last 2 - 3 days (if you're lucky) before they start to wear off, a Henna tattoo will last anything up to 3 weeks making it a much better option for anyone looking for long lasting temporary tattoos.

Due to their longer lasting nature temporary henna tattoos are really only suitable for older children and adults.

Henna dye comes from the henna tree and is formed by grinding the dried leaves of the tree and mixing them with an acidic liquid such as lemon juice to create the dye.

The dye is then applied to the skin and traditionally used to create beautiful and intricate swirling designs.

The effects are only temporary as the dye only sinks into the outer layer of skin meaning as skin is shed through natural exfoliation the henna tattoo also gradually disappears.

For those not sure if they want to go straight to the real thing when it comes to henna tattoos it is also possible to buy stick on temporary henna style tattoos which give the traditional reddish brown look but will only last a few days.
