My Henna Tattoo is Fashionable but Not Permanent!

I love to see tattoos. I love singer Rihanna’s tattoos. I love the thought of having musical notes and symbols tattooed along my neck. I mean there are an infinite amount of brilliant tattoos for your visual pleasure. That brings me to my point of discussion.

I was recently at the Northend Festival in Detroit, Michigan and got a henna tattoo! This was new for me because I never ever heard of a henna tattoo until then. I heard of henna for the hair, for the longest time though. Well, enough about that. For those of you who
don’t know, a henna tattoo is made with a colored gel that is squeezed from a tube and drawn on your body. I got this HENNA tattoo just yesterday. The young lady who drew it saw a picture of a tattoo on a woman’s hand and just started drawing it out on my left hand. It was full of detail, appealing to the eyes, and so darn elegant!

I was careful with what I touched because I didn’t want to
mess up the whole thing. The corner of my design on my finger got smudged right away a tad bit. But forget that. The henna tattoo is banging. I recommend it for those who’ve always loved to see tattoos and don’t want a permanent one.

I washed my hands and the design’s thick gel like consistency wore off. The thing is that it still left an imprint like something with a strong foundation. This is day two and the tattoo’s imprint is still there.
