the traditional dye that was used to do this is called "alta"- but
it's really been replaced with nail polish, which works just as well.
The upside to the nail polish is that it won't rub off on things once
it's dry... stays put good. All you have to do is rub it into the
skin with a finger.. usually 2 coats will do it. It's good and
durable too. I often wear it on my feet. Find a really bright red
nail polish for the best effect.

: Nail Polish, probably. The women I've asked here say their moms put
: nail polish on their hands as fake henna for dance performances.
