Since ancient times, people have tried to decorate their bodies in various ways. One of them is tattooing the skin. However, not everyone is able to endure pain or become the owner of an "eternal picture", and many want to stand out from the crowd with an original pattern on their skin. In this case, you can get a temporary henna tattoo at home.
It is necessary
- - henna;
- - water;
- - Eucalyptus oil;
- - a syringe without a needle;
- - felt-tip pens and cellophane;
- - lemon juice;

Clean and degrease the area where you want to get your temporary henna tattoo at home. This can be done with rubbing alcohol, a scrub, or a cleansing tonic.
Prepare your painting solution. To do this, mix one part henna with four parts water and add 2-3 drops of eucalyptus oil.
Draw the outline of the drawing on the body with a felt-tip pen. To make a temporary henna tattoo at home more accurate, it is better to use a stencil - draw a picture on cellophane film and print it on the skin.
Use a syringe without a needle to cover the pattern with henna. Remove excess dye solution with cotton wool in time, without waiting for the henna to dry.
To secure the design, spray it with hairspray and let your art dry well. To make the color of the tattoo more saturated, it should be dried in direct sunlight or an ultraviolet lamp.
To make the henna better absorbed, you can treat the tattoo site with lemon juice (mix two tablespoons of the juice with a tablespoon of sugar).
After you make a temporary henna tattoo at home, do not use soap, try to avoid contact with water and mechanical stress on the skin, lubricate the drawing with vegetable oil before water treatments. This will keep the tattoo bright and beautiful for much longer.
