For thousands of years the art of henna tattoos has been one of the best kept secrets of the Eastern world--recently 'discovered' by rock stars, super models like Naomi Campbell, and celebrities Demi Moore and Liv Tyler. Now, you can make your next entrance more eye-catching: try a band around your upper arm, or a fluttering pattern along your waist. This kit will commence your initiation into the mysteries of the ancient practice of henna adornment, a safe, non-permanent, beautiful art form. Each kit contains two packets of henna powder with application cones to allow you to create intricate designs, Mehlabiya oil capsules and six transfer sheets of ancient and contemporary patterns to guide you.
