One finds a number of stalls scattered along the beach path offering this service, most for a minimum of Php100 (for basic designs.) With so many of them to choose from, how exactly do you pick?
Me? I simply haggle! But all things being equal, if by some miracle all of them offer the same minimum price after haggling, then I suggest you choose someone whose personality you like (that’s in my opinion anyway.)
After 30 minutes, I came out with 2 tattoos – one on my ankle, the other on my arm.
Kuya even gave some interesting tips on how to make sure these temporary tattoos last longer on your skin:
- Try to avoid wetting your henna tattoo for a few more hours after it has completely dried. Moisture disrupts the darkening processes, hence shortening the life of your body art.
- Try not to exfoliate too much or even shave on the part of your skin where the henna tattoo is located.
- Apply vegetable, baby or massage oil daily to help your tattoo last longer.
- Dabbing lemon juice also helps to seal in the henna.
