Have some fun with a temporary tattoo by California’s award-winning, most sought-after henna artist Renu Lal. Henna painting is an ancient, all-natural, pain-free cosmetic and healing art. Dried leaves from the henna plant are crushed into a powder, then made into a paste that is applied to the body to safely dye the skin. This is done in elaborate patterns and designs, traditionally on hands and feet. The henna dyes the skin with a maroon stain which lasts 1 to 2 weeks and fades away leaving no visible marks. "In my culture, henna conjures up images of romance and creates an aura of glamour. It is referred to as the unspoken language of women. The symbols we use in Mehndi are said to be universal, with ancient meaning and a connection to the sources of Life," says Lal.
