As discussed earlier, a Henna tattoo is temporary and the color fades away in a month or so. However, it may happen that one wants to remove it for some reason before it completely fades away. Though it cannot be removed instantly, the color can be faded gradually. Some of the methods to remove Henna tattoos are given below:
- Frequent washing of the applied skin area can make the Henna fade quickly. Use a loofah and a strong soap, and scrub the applied area.
- Soak your skin in salt water for 20 minutes. This will help the tattoo stain to disappear. Salt makes the Henna ink diffuse in water.
- You can use some dead skin removers to remove the Henna design, but ensure that you do not have any skin allergy before applying the remover. This will not erase the stain completely, but will reduce the color to a great extent.
- After applying the Henna paste on the skin, if you do not like the design or want to remove the tattoo for some reason, wash the applied area immediately. This will not leave any stain on the applied area.
Henna body art removal is safe and uncomplicated. It does not cause any pain as in conventional tattoo removal. There are no instant methods that can help to remove the Henna quickly though. However, with the above-mentioned simple methods, one can fade the stain and gradually see the removal effect. The most simple method for removing Henna is recurrent washing of the skin.
