Henna vs. Permanent tattoos
Like this post? Yes | No    

I am and have always been interested in the ways of self expression, but generally prefer not to partake in the physical body modifications, due to their permanence. I would like to know, however, your opinions on henna tattoos, as opposed to permanent tattoos, since henna is not permanent. Is it worth looking into? Thanks!

Is it worth it for what?

Ignoring that for a moment... you want other people's opinion on how you should express yourself?

Really?

I'm not asking how I should use it...I'm asking if it's worth pursuing, or if it's just a waste of money. I'm just curious. I'm not asking anyone HOW to use it.

Yeah... that was my point.

Asking how to use it would be wanting to learn about the process...
If that had been what you asked, I would have said, check these sites out;
http://www.hennamehndi.com/
http://www.hennatattoo.com/
http://www.hennapage.com/

And watch these videos;



But, as you say, what you are asking is whether or not it YOU should use it... and only you can decide that.

I don't think it's real henna, but I know there's shit sold as henna that causes horrible autoimmune and other problems.

People with autoimmune diseases have been reported to have issues with henna, but its one of those issues where nobody actually seems to agree.

In regards to some Black Henna; (not legal in the states)

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-para...iamine-ppd.htm

Para-Phenylenediamine - One of the most dangerous applications of PPD is when it is added to henna, a natural dye. When used for temporary tattoos, henna laced with PPD is known as “Black Henna.” Although this is not an approved use for PPD in the United States, some tattoo artists will illegally add the chemical to henna for darker temporary tattoos that dry faster than pure henna tattoos. Because the dye is applied while the PPD is in its oxidation process, its potential as an allergen is increased. Black Henna tattoos often result in a skin reaction similar to a chemical burn, which in turn results in a scar where the skin was tattooed.

Here is a discussion about the issue;
http://hennatribe.org/viewtopic.php?...6c0ee7c8047721

Basically, the consensus of that discussion (you judge the validity of it yourself), is that there are no issues between henna and autoimmune diseases.

If you are looking to try it out for yourself, this is the kit I first started with;

Of the four people I have done it on so far... none of us have died or had any bad reactions.
