The Lifespan Of A Henna Tattoo

Last weekend, my friends Sean and Prathima got married and as part of the celebration, there was a mehndi party. This was only my second time having henna done and I loved it! But, while it's a beautiful art doesn't last very long. Here is the lifespan of my henna tattoo.

{4 days after}

{6 days after}

{9 days later}

Conclusion: They look great for a few days, then they start to fade. The fingers and hands last longer than the arms, because there's more heat and the heat is what sets the dye.
So many conversations were opened up with people commenting on my henna for the past week and I will definitely do this again!
