Safety Precautions

Safety Precautions
  • If you do decide to receive a henna tattoo, these are some safety precautions to keep in mind.
  • Ask to see a list of ingredients, and avoid dyes with PPD, or Bigen (a product containing PPD).
  • Ask what color it will produce. Avoid henna tattoos that will produce anything besides a reddish-brown stain.
  • Ask to see the paste. Natural henna is greenish and smells like hay bale or like spinach. Avoid paste that appears too dark.
  • Ask how long it takes to stain. Real henna takes 6–12 hours to stain properly; avoid dyes that will stain in shorter amounts of time.
  • Avoid henna tattoos that are predicted to last longer than 1 to 2 weeks – they probably contain PPD
  • or similar chemicals.
