Henna (Mehndi or body painting)

The Art of Mehndi

Advice from site: PLEASE, never use BLACK HENNA
Don't even go near it. A chemical called PPD, present in black henna, can cause chemical burns on your skin. Escaping an allergic reaction the first time you use black henna does not mean that you will have the same luck next time. Some artist/henna supplier listings here may use black henna.
