How To Do Henna Tattoos

It's really fun to learn about how to do henna tattoos. Henna is such a fun way to demonstrate artwork on your body. It can be used almost anywhere and is very safe.

Here are some things you need to do Henna tattoos:

  • Henna mix and preferred oils
  • Stencils
  • Clear or triangle carrot bag
  • Paint brushes


  1. Mixing the henna. Get your henna mix, which comes as a powder. Mix it with warm water and either add a little essential oils of your choice, or not, and maybe lemon to do a henna tattoo. Let the mixture sit for a good 10 hours or so. This guarantees the color has dye release and will easily stain your skin when you do a henna tattoo.
  2. Baggies for Henna. Get some plastic carrot bags from Henna or use regular bags with the closeable top and cut a very small notch in the corner of the bag when you are ready to do your henna tattoo.
  3. Stencils and paint brushes. Another way to do henna tattoos is to use stencils or paint brushes. You have a few options to choose from. Get stencils from a craft store, garage sale, or get them from a henna supplier. Paint brush are also possible but not recommended for someone who is a beginner.

And designing a henna tattoo is sure to be a lot of fun even if it doesn't turn out 100% professional. Be aware, that henna is not very cheap. It can be a bit expensive, but it goes a long way if you use it right.
