Artistic tattoo is very popular today. With the help of drawings, people imprint on their bodies memorable events, dates, names of loved ones, and sometimes just symbols of their freedom of thought and originality.
A good tattoo is quite expensive today. A talented master appreciates his work, so even for the smallest tattoo you will have to pay a tidy sum. If you want to avoid these costs, try getting the tattoo yourself. Such a pattern will not be particularly durable, but, on the other hand, it will be easier for you to get rid of the tattoo if you get tired of it.
How to make tattoo paints at home?
The simplest and most convenient dye is henna. You can buy it at any beauty store. To slightly change the shade, ordinary products that are in every home are added to the paint - wine, lemon juice. So, the recipes for making tattoo paints are as follows:
1. Dissolve 30-40 grams of pure henna powder in half a liter of hot water.
When the mixture boils, add 2 teaspoons of black tea and ground coffee. Boil the solution for an hour and then strain it.
2. Dissolve 30-40 grams of pure henna powder in 250 ml of hot water. When the solution boils, add 250 ml of red wine to it.
3.Dissolve 30-40 grams of henna in 1/2 liter of hot water. Add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and sugar to boiling water.
4. Dissolve 30-40 grams of henna powder in 500 ml of hot water. When the water boils, add 5 tablespoons of clover, and then steam the mixture for 20 minutes over low heat.
Depending on the components, you will get different shades of paints.
There is also a heavier, but persistent recipe:
Sift enough henna to make between 1 and 1.25 cups of dry powder. Then take 2 bags of instant coffee and boil them in 1.5 cups of water until the excess evaporates and you have 3/4 cup of dark liquid. Then mix the coffee with the powder so that you end up with a thick paste. Then add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (preferably fresh), 5 drops of eucalyptus oil, 5 drops of clove oil. The paste should be soft, but not too runny. If the mass has become too liquid, you need to add sifted henna powder. If, on the contrary, it turned out too dense, you need to add a little coffee or water. Before applying the tattoo, the paste should stand for two hours in the refrigerator.
