Non-Permanent Body Art Done RIGHT*♥ (:
Hey girls! @xoxrayhana here (: This tip is about ways to get NON-permanent body art and how to do it correctly. Non-permanent because I’m pretty sure most of us are younger than 18. And it’s less painful. I will tell you how what materials to use and give you a couple of ideas to draw or write on your body (: Enjoy!
P.S- If you’re not good at drawing or writing in a straight line, have a friend or someone else that is good at it do it (:
O1; Materials*♥ (:
-Henna. Henna is most likely to last more than any other material. It comes in different colors; red, black, and green (I think you can get it in green). A henna tattoo will last anywhere between four days and for weeks, depending on the area you place it in. You can Google Henna for different ideas (:
-Markers. Fresh markers are great for drawing on your body and not necessarily toxic as our parents always tell us. Just get the ones that say non-toxic. Sharpie markers are permanent than regular markers.
-Pens are also good, just make sure they’re non toxic and write smooth. Sharpie pens also work great
-Stencils or templates to help you when drawing (:
O2; Drawings/ Symbols*♥ (:
-When drawing body art, you most likely will want to draw something that symbolizes something important to you, or something you love, or just a really inspirational drawing.
Some ideass (:
♥☮☺ (Peace, Love, Happiness). This will look nice drawn horizontally or vertically (:
-An animal or insect that symbolizes something special for you. For example, a butterfly might represent freedom or beauty (:
-A trail of stars. This will look great done with Henna, or with a Sharpie pen. Also, with the pens you can do multi-colored stars (:
-A rose, or any flower you might like. Can either be drawn with the stem or without (:
-I think a feather drawing would be really cool, in any color or multi-colored! (:
-A dream catcher (:
-An anchor would be cool..
-A starfish or just a regular star
-Bubble clouds with words in them (:
-An octopus or jellyfish (:
-The infinity sign, followed by a heart.
-Two cherries hanging from their vines (:
-A bow or Ribbon
-A bird or an owl (:
Aha, that’s all the ones I can think of for symbols or drawings. Look up “tattoos” collections in the Polyvore search engine for more ideas (:
O3; Words/Quotes*♥ (:
Something really inspirational and catchy, but not too long (: At the end of these quotes, it’ll be cute to add a little heart (: I’ve added hearts to the ones I really love.
-Hakuna Matata (:♥
-What doesn’t kill me only makes me stronger. You can substitute “kill” with either destroy or defeat.
-If you want to be a little humorous with that quote up there, put: What doesn’t defeat me better start running! Taken from the one any only Jace from Mortal Instruments (:
-The best way out is always through
-We’re all just young and insane♥

I could sit here ALL day writing quotes and sayings since I’m so obsessed with them, but sadly I can’t do that. Search “Quotes” collections in the Polyvore search engine for more ideas♥ (:
O4; Places to put your body art (:
-Your hands (both of them)
-The sides of your feet
-On top of your fingers
-I’ve gotten a small heart henna tattoo on my cheek before (:
-On your legs
-At the small of your back. I got one last summer and called it my “tramp stamp” as a joke and to see what my mom would say xD. She didn’t get it though :P
- In that space under your ear
-You could draw a really small heart or star in the inside of your ear (:
Hope you all enjoyed this tip (: If you do try body art, tell me how it goes!
