Henna tattoo or body paint?

Ok awhile ago asked about Henna Tattoo's. Now what I need to know is: I ran it past the girls about doing this for a girls night and they are on board but can you get a Henna tattoo anywhere on your body? Also are they colorful? All the ones I see are dark. Also does anyone know how long body paint stays on?

  • It is really funny, some of our husbands are really against them and out of respect we are not getting real ones. But for me pain is also a factor. lol

  • Henna tattoos are generally a reddish brown color but I do believe I have seen some that are black.

    The "goo" is applied in a design and then allowed to dry after it dries it will flake off and you will be left with just the ink design on your skin. When I had one done years ago it lasted about a week but I was in dance and other school activities so I was showering multiple times a day and that will speed up the process of it fading.

    They are lots of fun btw, but it does itch a little when it's flaking off... lol
