Henna , a tall shrub or small tree,Lawsonia inermis, produces a burgundy dye molecule, lawsone. This molecule has an affinity for bonding with protein, and thus has been used to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather, silk and wool.Though henna has been used for body art and hair dye since the Bronze Age, henna has had a recent renaissance in body art due to improvements in cultivation, processing, and the diasporas of people from traditional henna using regions.

  1. Hi

    I am just wondering why you are using all my henna photo’s on your blog. They are not even linked back to my flickr account or website!!

    You need permission from ME!

  2. Although we can’t determine what the circumstance was for this encounter, we will assume you are making this information known to either warn others of your capabilities, impress your fellow peers, or because you have remorse for what you did. To grow to be a good tattoo artist, you need to practice your skill. Then again, you can also go for the Marqueson tribal tattoo designs.
