Henna tattoos are fun, safe, easy, beautiful — and temporary...

Painting with henna, or mehndi, is an art form that is steeped in tradition. Men and women throughout India, Africa, and the Middle East have been adorning their bodies with graceful, colorful henna tattoos for thousands of years.
The designs can be small or large, simple or intricate, pictorial or abstract, mystical or whimsical — but they are always pleasing to the eye.
Now you too can enjoy designing in this ancient tradition with easy-to-use Earth Henna body painting kits and accessories from Lakaye Studio.
Just about any part of the body can be painted with our specially formulated natural henna mixture: hands, fingers, feet, face, legs, arms, back, belly, and everything in between. Best of all, henna leaves a stain on the skin that fades away after only a few weeks.
So whether you want to simply try out this fascinating and exotic art form ... or make a bold fashion statement ... or please your lover ... henna mehndi body art is the safe — and fun — alternative to permanent tattoos.
Safety Warning to Consumers
Avoid "Black Henna"!
Whatever you do, please do not buy so-called "black henna" from any dealer or apply a tattoo made from "black henna." Henna is not black. Genuine, natural henna powder is always green, and the stain that the paste leaves on the skin ranges in color from reddish to russet to brown. Products labeled "black henna" may contain a synthetic black hair dye called para-phenylendiamine. This chemical is also used in photographic development. When applied to the skin, PPD is dangerous and can cause blistering, open sores, scarring, and lifelong health problems.
To learn more about the dangers of black henna, see the Henna Page, which also has a great deal of information on the topic of black henna.
Needless to say, Earth Henna products are made from all-natural ingredients and are guaranteed free from harmful chemicals.
For a simple, completely safe alternative to "black henna," try our new Earth Jagua body painting kit — the all-natural solution to creating hip, realistic BLACK tattoos that are temporary.
