Choose between Henna Artists, who apply design free hand and Henna Stencil. Just provide a table and some chairs and we are ready to go. With either the free-hand artist or the stencil the Henna paste is applied to the desired area, the paste is made from the powder of dried henna leaves.
When the design is complete it is covered to protect it while it dries. The henna paste starts staining the skin almost immediately, the longer the paste remains on the skin the stronger the color will appear. We recommend leaving your henna to dry for two hours. Once the design has dried the paste will start to flake off, at this time the paste can be brushed off and the design will remain.
The color of your Henna Body Art will continue to get darker over the course of 48 hours and will last about 2-3 weeks. Real henna only penetrates the outer layer of skin making it virtually harmless, making it a good option for your corporate event, college event or trade show.
For thousands of years people have been using henna to dye everything from skin and hair to leather and silk. Today when we think of henna we think of the ancient Indian form of body art. It’s origins date back about 5,000 years from Pakistan, India, the Middle East and parts of Africa. The very first uses of henna was as a way to cool the body from the intense desert heat. The cooling sensation would last until staining would fade. The bi-product of this cooling system is the staining of the skin.
The use of henna as body art began to transform and be used culturally as a form of beauty and tradition. Historically, women were adorned with henna body art for special occasions such as weddings and childbirth, the henna designs are thought to bring blessings and good luck.
While henna body art has been around since ancient time it has become increasingly popular in the US. The temporary nature of the body art makes it appealing to a wide variety of people. These intricate and exotic designs are popular with both men and women. Many people refer to Henna as “Henna Tattoo” in actuality it is Henna Body Art. The Henna is applied on top of the skin and does not penetrate underneath as traditional tattoo would. This makes Henna Body Art temporary, painless and a popular way to adorn the skin.
Massage on the Go USA has been offering Henna Body Art as an additional service to our clients with great success. Our clients appreciate the beauty of the artwork and the popularity amongst their participants. It has been shown to be a draw at trade shows and large events as well as at small intimate parties.
