Getting ready to start work at the tat parlor on Tuesday, I was
reading over my henna predecessor's aftercare sheet. She recommended
protecting designs with a light slick of vegetable oil prior to

I haven't heard of this before. Sounds reminiscent of those "henna
oils" one sees. Then again, could very likely be a whole part of

there something better to use?

Many thanks!

Be well,
