Henna tattoos are non-permanent 'stains' on the top layer of the skin. They are traditionally intricate designs that mark the skin in a brown/orange colour. They will naturally fade in time but on average last about 2-4 weeks depending on the type of henna used and the care of the area that was tattooed.

Henna tattoo are often used as a means of deciding whether or not to get a permanent tattoo.
Henna has been used since the Bronze Age to dye skin (including body art), hair, fingernails, leather, silk and wool. In several parts of the world it is traditionally used in various festivals and celebrations. For skin dyeing, a paste of ground henna (either prepared from a dried powder or from fresh ground leaves) is placed in contact with the skin from a few hours to overnight. Henna stains can last a few days to a month depending on the quality of the paste, individual skin type, and how long the paste is allowed to stay on the skin.
Use of henna for body art has enjoyed a recent renaissance due to improvements in cultivation, processing, and the emigration of people from traditional henna-using regions.
