Henna Tattoo Training Course


Henna is an ancient and traditional art where a temporary and intricate design is applied to the hands and feet. The henna paste is made from the crushed leaves and twigs of the henna plant. When this paste is applied to the skin, it leaves orange or dark maroon stains which usually last between 7-14 days. The term Mehindi or Mehandi is often used to describe the application of henna to the body. The art of applying henna has roots in many ancient cultures, but in today’s society is mostly recognised as an Indian tradition. Students enrolling on a henna course will learn how to create beautiful henna art, which is a 100% natural and beautiful skill.
