To achieve the best possible stain, the paste should be left on your skin for at least 2 to 3 hours. The longer the paste stays on your skin (up to an over-night period), the better quality the final stain will be. However, as long as you can see orange on your skin in a place where paste has flaked off, that means the Henna has stained your skin.
When the paste flakes off your skin, the stain underneath will be a light orange. Try to avoid washing the new Henna tattoo for at least an hour, if you can.
The Henna stain will darken over the next 24 to 48 hours; the final color will be a warm, chocolaty-brown on thinner skin, and can get as dark as a deep burgundy on thicker skin.
To have your Henna tattoo as long as possible, leave the Henna paste on your skin as long as you can, use unscented lotions (pure shea or cocoa butter work great) and try to avoid scrubbing the tattoo
