Henna Art, Henna tattoos or Mehndi is a form of body art. A paste made from the henna plant is applied to the skin using a cone or a brush which then leaves a stain. The stain is initially orange and darkens to a brown over the course of 24-48 hours. The stain lasts two to three weeks depending on the care of the tattoo. Lynn is available for individual henna sessions, prenatal belly henna and group henna parties for multiple individuals. Henna can be applied to any part of the body. Please contact Lynn directly for pricing and availability. Early booking is recommended to guarantee availability. *Only natural brown henna is used. Black henna is not safe for human skin.

Henna After Care Instructions:
1. Leave the paste on the skin for a minumum of 3 hours up to 24. The paste will start flaking off on its own. This is normal. Leaving the paste on longer will achieve a darker stain.
2. Scrape the paste off of the skin. Coconut oil can be applied to assist in this process. DO NOT WASH OFF THE PASTE.
3. Your stain will turn from an orange to a brown hue in about 24 hours.
4. Try not to get the area wet any more than necessary. Water will make your henna fade quickly. Apply coconut oil right before and immediately after getting the area wet.
5. Apply coconut oil several times a day. Do not use lotions with chemicals; this will fade your henna. With appropriate care, coconut oil and minimal water exposure your henna can last from 5 days to 3 weeks.
