Body art made with henna and jagua lasts a long time (up to two weeks) and creating a new design directly on the skin can be nerve-wracking. When it comes to giving yourself, your friends or your clients a temporary tattoo, Body Art Transfer Paper can provide peace of mind. It is especially useful for transposing designs from paper (a sketchbook, magazine or even computer screen, for instance) to the skin. It is also helpful for imagining symmetrical or otherwise complex designs on the contours of the body, which is not exactly a flat surface, after all.
Commonly used as a fragrance and for its many medicinal and antibacterial properties, eucalyptus oil is also used with henna and jagua for body art applications. The natural solvents in essential oils help produce darker stains from these natural colorants.
Non-permanent body art with a shimmery twist! Draw on designs with the medical-grade adhesive using the fine applicator bottle or apply through one of the 6 included stencils. Also can be applied with a brayer and a rubber stamp. Just let the adhesive dry a little, dab on the glitter and the design is done! Designs last for days or are easily removed with baby oil.
Henna is a natural colorant made from the dried leaves of the Lawsonia inermis shrub. It produces a beautiful reddish-orange-brown color that bonds well with protein fibers and has been used for thousands of years to dye skin (mehndi), fingernails, hair, leather, silk, and wool. On cellulose fibers, it produces a pale ecru color and must be used with a mordant.
