To fill a permanent tattoo is a responsible act, because a person will have to walk with it all his life. For those who like tattoos, but do not want to do them on a permanent basis, there is another option - to make a temporary drawing on the skin.
The easiest option is to draw a drawing using makeup. For these purposes, theatrical make-up is suitable, which is used by actors, as well as face painting, which can be bought on the free market. Face painting is good because it is easy to apply, does not cause allergies, as it consists of natural dyes and is easily washed off with warm water and soap.
It is better to apply makeup with a thin stick or brush, the background can be done with a sponge. Apply the pattern in areas that are not in contact with your clothes, otherwise the pattern will simply wear off. Such a tattoo is applied for one day and then simply washed off in the shower.
If you want the drawing to last longer, then you can try getting a henna tattoo. To do this, you need to purchase special henna (it is sold in beauty salons and tattoo workshops), since henna is not suitable for dyeing hair for these purposes.
First, let's prepare a stencil. To do this, you need to draw the outline of the picture on a transparent film. After that, we apply it to the skin to get a print.
Henna can be prepared as follows. Boil half a liter of water, add 2 teaspoons of ground coffee and 2 teaspoons of black tea. We take 30-40 grams of henna powder, slowly pour it into the solution until the consistency of thick sour cream. For a richer color, you can add a dash of lime juice.
After the paste has cooled down (about three hours), you can start drawing with a thin stick or toothpick. The contour of the drawing is outlined twice with an interval of one hour. Before applying a tattoo, it is necessary to epilate this place, otherwise the pattern will spread. After the tattoo is completely dry, the excess paint can be removed with a dull knife.
Such tattoos stay on the skin from five days to two weeks. Experts advise taking a break when applying such patterns to the same place for at least two months, since the skin must rest.
If you are unsure of your drawing abilities, then temporary tattoos can be done at a tattoo parlor or beauty salon.
