we did little freebies (they could only get what was on our little
sheet), and 4-H made up little permission slips so that there was no
liability on their part or ours. I think that was a good idea
for kids because you may use essential oils or lemon juice in your
paste that someone could be allergic to (adults just require verbal
consent). Of course you want to disclose what is in the mix before
you do the tatt, just in case (I did come across a kid that's allergic
to citrus). Also, you want to explain how to take care of it.
To deal with all of this (and my name & phone number for future
reference) I did a half-sheet "How To Take Care of Your Henna Tattoo"
(2 on a page, copy a bunch and cut them in half) and this saved me
from having to explain the whole deal over and over. This sheet
included: 1) How to get the best stain (don't let anybody smudge it,
try to leave it on for as long as possible, how to remove the paste),
2) The henna paste characteristics and ingredients and 3) Call me if
you need help with a reaction or if you want to book a party or event.
Its a good marketing tool, and it covers your butt!
The Henna is unique in that it takes a while to stain and people need
to take care of it, and in order not to get a bad reputation around
town, you have to explain these things to people.
I'm also new at all this so I hope other people will give you their
