Hello! I'm a henna artist who'd like some advice on design transfers

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, my name is Kiran, thank you for the add. :D

I'm actually a bridal henna artist and had a question regarding transfers.

I notice that for ink tattooing, professionals use a machine to make a tattoo transfer either on transfer paper or on carbon paper and after applying it on the skin then use that as a guide/template to ink their clients.

I was considering of doing the same for more intricate bridal work but wanted to ask if anyone might have advice on whether this would work for a medium like henna. I guess i would essentially be applying the henna directly over the ink/deodorant and am concerned if the henna would be able to pass through the ink and seep into the skin? Didn't want to invest in the machine if the technique wouldn't work.

Would appreciate any kind of advice.

Thank you!

I think they're referring to acetate stencils, and whether ir not the henna would still work as intended when applied over a stencil.

Atleast that's how I interpreted it. Can't help though as im not a tattoer

    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
