Compared to temporary tattoos, henna does not use full range of colors, but uses shades of reds and browns. Once mehndi is applied, it is left on the skin for a few hours to stain. The stain fades away gradually when the skin sheds. Henna tattoos can last from days to months depending on how you apply them and maintain them.
