Henna doesn't naturally come in black. A lot of hennas that claim to be black can give you an allergic reaction from an ingredient called PPD, or just results that aren't that great. If you want a tattoo look without the commitment, transfers or temporary body paints are a much better way to go.

Henna or Mehndi designs are actually stains that are applied directly to the skin. The Henna paste sometimes comes in a powder form, which the artist mixes.

Designs are usually intricate, and give the impression of a lace-like fabric laying on the skin.
