Henna

November 8, 2008 2:28pm CST
I've been applying henna tattoos on myself and others for a long while, has anyone here tried them? Do you prefer henna tattoos to permanent tattoos? I really love the patterns and trying out all of the designs. In India and Pakistan henna is used a lot at weddings and all kinds of celebrations, it is also very popular in other cultures and in a range of religions too, if you have not had a henna tattoo would you consider it?

i had once tried HENNA tattoo when we are on a field trip, well it just for fun really and i don;t consider HENNA tattoo cool enough compared to the permanent one. now i have a permanent tattoo, though it was a bit painful having one, there's some meaning to it and that's what i like it and it's going to be permanent till the day i die lol!

cool, you know I am pretty much opposite of you. I can't ever seem to make my mind up. One day I like something one day and the next I hate it. Henna is perfect for people like me coz if I got a perm tattoo and didn't like it I would be pretty much stuck with it.

I have not used henna. I had a friend that loved to put it on. It is quite beautiful. I would consider trying them. I have two permanent tattoos and I love them.

I really do love tattoos but one problem i have is that i get bored of them easily, i mean the designs. I like the fact that with henna it fades and you can try a new style.

Yeah I used to always have a henna tattoo in my ankle. It's dolphins circling my ankle then in between are chinese characters which I find really cool. Now I have a permanent tattoo in my chest. It's a scorpion.
