Henna
Henna is a flowering plant used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. The name is also used for dye preparations derived from the plant, and for the art of temporary tattooing based on those dyes
 
What is Henna
Henna is a paste created by the crushed leaves of henna plants, which have a natural staining ability, and added ingredients such as teas and herbs.

The use of the paste to create body decoration, or "Mehndi Art," originated in India. Mehndi art has been used in India, Africa, and the Middle East for thousands of years and has long been used as a spiritual art to decorate the skin of brides for their marriage ceremonies. But, it has taken on a much more contemporary flair since it entered the tattoo industry here in the states about a decade ago. Giving the ability to create as individual and detailed a design as an ink tattoo without the permanency is causing henna tattoos to grow in popularity. They give all the fun of a tattoo without the commitment.
