I would clarify that they aren't *really* tattoos.

"Mehndi is the art of applying a paste made from henna, a natural
plant dye, to the skin for a temporary (2-4 weeks)tattoo effect.
Mehndi is traditionally practiced in a wide variety of areas in the
world ranging from Africa to the Middle East, from India to the South
Pacific. It has no intrinsic religious meaning, but is oftentimes
applied for celebrations such as weddings, bridal showers, and baby
showers. It is painless, all natural, and fun for all ages. I apply
traditional and contemporary designs at all sorts of showers,
celebrations and parties."
