How Long Henna Tattoo Lasts
When people get Henna tattoos, the obvious question is; how long does it last? Because Henna tattoos are temporary you can get them and expect them to fade very quickly, unlike a regular tattoo! This makes them quite good to get 1) if you’re thinking about getting a tattoo but you’re not sure yet 2) you don’t want a real tattoo but want to get the look of one for a short while or 3) if you’ve got a special event you want to do something different for.
So, how long does it last? Well, that depends on your body make up, everyone is different. Henna tattoos will generally last between 1 and 3 weeks, with most people’s lasting between 10 days and 14 days. The henna will fade over this time, it won’t just be there one day and gone the next. So what this means is that when you first get your henna it will be very dark, but will fade to a very light (and then gone) over about a two week period.
This makes henna tattoos great to do over your school or work holidays, if you think they wouldn’t be allowed at your school or workplace!
