I have several tattoos and can’t wait to get a few more, but they’re all pretty much concealed for work purposes. Once in a while I wish I had a bold tattoo out in full view, but shrink away when I realize how permanent that would be. So in comes the Henna Tattoo, which can last up to two weeks and I can put it anywhere I want.
Henna tattoos are made from a paste applied directly in your body and its a natural way to apply pigment to it.
I got mine from a shop at the mall, if you see on the photos below when you leave the shop you will have a paste in your skin in the form of the tattoo design you selected. I noticed there are two pigment colors, I got the lighter one.
The instructions I received were to let it dry for an hour or so until it easily flaked off, apply oil to moisturize the skin and don’t let water touch it for at least 12 hours. When the Henna dried out I was disappointed because you could barely see it, yet I followed the instructions. Turns out it needs time for the pigment to oxidize and you can see the result below.
Mother’s Day in my family is a big event with several dozen aunts, uncles, cousins, food and fun. We all prepare for the party at least one month in advance, we wear our pretty summer dresses and have a great time.
This year, before I bought the dress, my mom’s gift or the greeting cards, I bought Kat Von D Tattoo Concealer.
My family is a tad old-fashioned and I prefer them not to see my tattoos, while at the same time I don’t want to compromise my personal style by getting a dress I don’t like just to hide them. And this product really works as you can see for yourself with Kat Von D in this photo shoot promoting her fragrance Saint & Sinner.
I did some tests on myself before the big party and was very pleased with the results. The concealer comes in different shades, it retails for $25 can be purchased exclusively at Sephora.
This is a great product if you want to dress up or just want to maintain the peace in the family.
