We took Samantha to the Renaissance Festival and she just had to have a Henna tattoo. Henna is a plant, when made into a paste by drying the leaves, mashing and mixing with water, lemon juice, or strong tea. It is then applied to the skin where it will stain the skin within minutes. The longer the henna is on the skin the deeper the stain becomes. The henna flakes off and an orange stain remains. Over the next two to three days the tattoo darkens and then fades in two to three works. The artist that did Samantha’s was very nice and while talking to him was told he had designed the tattoo Samantha was getting.
