What kind of design should I get and where should I get it?
Henna Junkie artist hand draw all designs. This means you can come with a design you've drawn/printed out or have one of their artist come up with a design and free flow. Jennifer's main style is floral free form. Either case it is good to be prepared so that the process goes smoothly. Feel free to contact us to talk about your future henna design.
Henna works best on the hands and feet, with lighter varying shades of brown on other areas of the body such as the legs, arms and backs. Please know that if your skin is a shade of brown naturally, henna will appear a darker shade of your own skin color. We at Henna Junkie think this is a beautiful look. If you have very dark skin and you want the henna strikingly visible then the palms are your best bet. Please keep in mind whatever your skin tone, henna is always darkest on the palms and soles of the feet which can reach a dark burgundy color.
