How do you do henna on dark skin?  The same way you do it on light skin!  Women in  Africa adorn themselves with henna, and their henna is beautiful!
Henna is the same color no matter what color of skin you have.  However, henna is translucent, and will "blend" with the skin tone.  If skin color is close to henna color, use bold patterns to create beautiful "tone on tone" effects.  Mixing and applying henna is the same for any skin color.  Want to know more about henna on dark skin?  Read "Henna and People of Color" by Catherine Cartwright-Jones.
