Do I have to wear specific clothing or otherwise prepare for henna?

Avoid all oils or lotions on the area you want hennaed.
Arrive with clean oil-free skin.

If you use a heavy body butter, avoid using it a day or two BEFORE your henna appointment. Body butters can take some time to clear out the skin cells. Henna requires clean dry skin for the best color.

Avoid self tanners in the area to be hennaed. Henna has trouble bonding to skin cells that have self tanner.

Wear comfortable clothing that will expose the area of the body that you want hennaed. Remember, henna will stain clothing along with your skin.

If you are doing henna on your feet, consider wearing thin-strap flip flops that I can henna around, so you don’t have to leave the studio barefoot.

If you are doing tummy tuck scar coverage or belly henna, consider wearing a loose dress with a pair of shorts under it. You can pull up the dress and lower the shorts while I work. Once the henna is set, you can carefully put the dress back down without harming your henna.

What’s in your henna? Is henna safe?

YES, my henna is absolutely safe! I mix my henna myself and only use safe ingredients that contribute to a great henna stain. My henna paste leaves a natural red/brown stain and takes a couple days to darken (one of the marks of safe henna).

Allergies to natural henna are very rare. Check the henna ingredient list below to be sure you are not sensitive to any ingredients in my henna.

Henna Ingredients:
ORa Organic Henna Powder
Lemon Juice
Lavender Essential Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil

Anytime you get henna from ANYONE, your henna artist should always tell you what is in their henna, the henna should never be black, and the color should need some time to develop from orange to red/brown.

How long will the henna tattoo last and what color will it be?

The color and longevity of a henna tattoo depends on a number of factors including how long you leave the paste on your skin, what part of the body you decorate, the cleanliness of the area, your skin chemistry, and how you care for your henna.

Henna starts off orange and darkens over 2-3 days to a red/brown color. The hands and feet get the darkest color and the further away from those areas you get, the lighter the stain.

Generally you can expect good color for 5-10 days and all traces of henna will be gone in 1-3 weeks. The best color is 2-3 days AFTER the henna is applied.

The final color you get will depend on all the factors listed above.

How Do I care for my henna tattoo?

  • Keep the paste on as long as possible; ideally 4 hours or more.
  • Avoid water for as long as possible (try to avoid water for the rest of the day).
  • Keep the skin warm while the henna paste is on the skin.

The longer you keep the henna paste in contact with your skin, the darker and longer lasting your henna tattoo. The longer you avoid water, the better the henna will oxidize.

Henna is a permanent stain. The henna doesn’t fade away, your skin cells exfoliate off, thus “fading” the henna. Anything you do that is exfoliating will fade your henna. This includes swimming, cleaning chemicals, facial scrubs, and anything else that exfoliates the skin.

Can I see samples of your work?

Sure! All the pictures on this website are of my personal work. There are the samples above, but you can see our Henna Picture Gallery page.

What kind of henna designs can I have?

You can have nearly anything you want! I do custom one-of-a-kind work. I like to get an idea of the style you like and create something just for you. This is what we talk about during the consultation before starting your henna design. I have plenty of pictures for inspiration in the studio.

You are welcome to request something specific or just use something as inspiration. If you want something specific, email the design to me,, when you make your appointment.

Does henna have to be on my hands or feet?

Henna takes best on the hands and feet, but can be done anywhere on the body.

Mandala shoulder henna design Orlando FL

The back (upper or lower), shoulder, belly, arms, or legs can all be hennaed.

For the best color choose below the elbow and below the knee. The calf and forearm take henna beautifully!

You are welcome to select other areas of the body, but be aware you will get substantially lighter stains on the chest, back, or belly areas.
