    Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Stagecoach—How to Choose?

    Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Stagecoach—How to Choose?

    OK, so most of us have limited budgets, and we love festivals, so how do you decide which one(s) to attend, which ones to cross off your list, which one you’ll do next year, instead? Aaaargh! Sorry, but I don’t have any answers. I suggest eenie meenie myney mo, and enjoy yourself anytime and anywhere you are lucky enough to land.

    And what if, for whatever reason, you can’t make it to any of them? Gasp! Well, here I do have a solution: create festival season wherever you are! First things first, get your body art on. Of course, you expect that from me, but still, it’s true. Seems to me that people who love music festivals also love body adornment, just like us guys on the Earth Henna team. So to put yourself in the mood, I say choose among oh, so many options!—henna tattoos, jagua tattoos, white henna tattoos, silver henna tattoos, gold henna tattoos, and a whole assortment of flash and stick-on temporary tattoos from our Beauty collection, which offers shiny, shimmery and glamorous body art options for glowing, and even scented tattooed skin!

    I guarantee that, once you’re all decked out with gorgeous body art—watercolor butterflies on your shoulder; floral vines going up your arms and legs; shimmery gold flash tattoos around your eyes and on your finger tips; beautiful, symbolic henna tattoos on your hands; or beautiful, tribal jagua tattoos on the back of your neck, you’ll start to hear the music follow you around wherever you go!

    Get in the groove. From now until April 21, all temporary tattoo kits and Beauty products are 15% off, with FREE SHIPPING if you spend $30. It’s our pleasure to serve your body adornment needs!

    Jagua From Head to Toe

    Jagua From Head to Toe

    People just love having painted hands. There’s something so exotic and tribal and just plain gorgeous about adorning your hands with a beautiful temporary tattoo; not to mention watching the surprised and delighted looks on people’s faces as they catch a glimpse of your unexpectedly decorated hands, as you talk animatedly about something, or make a motion, or reach for a glass. Look at this cool design, which graces the cover of our Earth Jagua Black Temporary Tattoo Kit:

    Fabulous, right? But ladies and gentlemen, why stop at your hands? Once you have your Earth Jagua gel in hand, why not consider your entire body a canvas? Jagua gives you the appearance of having a permanent tattoo, so why not go to town? If you could tattoo your legs, your back, the back of your neck, your chest, your feet, what design would you choose? At Earth Henna, our tag line is “Paint your body beautiful.” So, no surprise, we recommend experimentation! Check out these beautiful designs:

    Feeling inspired? Go for it! Our Earth Jagua gel is all-natural—it is not black henna, nor does it contain henna. The mesmerizing blue/black color comes from the jagua fruit, which grows deep in the Peruvian Amazon jungle. The Matsés people, who we’ve been working with for eight years, climb the trees, collect the fruit, peel it, grate it to get the pulp, which is then squeezed to get the juice. That juice is shipped to us here in Los Angeles, where the juice is used as the base for our Earth Jagua gel. No trees are cut down to create our product, and it is, hands down, the best jagua gel available anywhere. We’re biased, but we’re right!

    There’s a 15% off sale on all henna and jagua kits (and white henna kits, and all beauty products too!) at www.earthhenna.com until April 21. And if you spend $30, you get free shipping. What are you waiting for? Just use code: FESTIVAL15.

    Coachella Dreamin’

    Coachella Dreamin’

    I’m drinking coconut water, I’m warm and sweaty, I’m smiling, I’m swaying to the music, hands up in the air. I turn around and look at my bestie. Her eyes are closed, huge smile plastered on her face, hips in perpetual motion. She is rocking out!

    We’re at Coachella, having the time of our lives. Being here is what we look forward to every year. The crazy cool musical lineup, the amazing electricity you feel as you interact with people, all of whom are sharing the same experience as you. Connecting with fellow human beings in a way that is so unlike day-to-day living back home. Every year you swear you’re going to recreate this beautiful energy everywhere you go. But hell, listening to your playlist as you drive around Los Angeles doesn’t come close to the kickass jolt you get from being in front of live performers. Or grooving on that endless parade of people in badass outfits, enhanced, for the most part, by gorgeous body art--henna tattoos, jagua tattoos, white henna tattoos, silver glitter tattoos, gold henna, silver henna, the list goes on!

    In fact, when my BFF opens her eyes, looks over at me and flashes me a peace sign, I laugh because she’s henna tattooed a peace sign on her palm, and her fingertips are all henna painted with hearts. She’s in love with Coachella! I choose to go with a fabulous jagua tattoo snaking up my arm—and I mean snaking! My design is a long, sexy snake, whose tail starts on the back of my hand, swirls around my arm and rests its head on my shoulder. Love it! On my other arm are a bunch of white henna flowers, sprinkled with silver glitter hearts. Everybody’s commenting on my beautiful body adornment. I’m stoked!

    And then my alarm goes off. Damn, I’m not at Coachella. I have to take my car to the shop, and then I need to go food shopping. Oh, well. But I’m happy all the same because I just realized that I haven’t missed it. Coachella’s coming right up on April 14, and that gives me enough time to get my act together—gather my Royaltats hair ornaments, my favorite jeans, skirts, and butterfly arm tops, and my temporary tattoo kits, so I can start practicing the designs I’m going to rock at Coachella!

    You can get your temporary tattoo kits at Earthhenna.com, where we're giving away 15% off on all kits and Beauty products until April 21, the last day you can order before Coachella! Spend $30 and get free shipping too! Use code: Festival15.

    See you at Coachella!

     

    Spring Flowers and Body Art

    Spring Flowers and Body Art

    You may be wondering what spring flowers have to do with body art, but over here at Earth Henna, we wait for spring more than most. Why? Because although we love the cool, brisk air of winter (I'd say something about those twinkly snowflakes, but we're out here in Los Angeles), and getting to wear heavy sweaters and boots, the truth of the matter is that it's when things start warming up that people begin thinking about showing some skin, and by extension, body adornment!

    It's not like no one cares about body art and temporary tattoos during winter--they do. We stay pretty busy around here during the winter months. But you don't have to be a psychic to know that once people start peeling off the layers, once the air warms up, and the days get longer, that's when folks seriously start imagining what henna designs or jagua designs or white henna and silver henna designs they might want to show off.

    I know all the girls in the office start talking about floral vines curling up around their arms and legs (like the one featured on our Earth Henna Classic Kit). So pretty!

    They also start thinking about festival season, what they'll be wearing, and how they'll be adorning their bodies. For this reason, we created the Festival Beauty Bundle, which comes with our Earth Henna Premium Kit, along with RoyalTats' groovy hair tattoos--flash tattoos that adorn your hair! 

    So if the spring equinox got you thinking about the longer, sunnier days to come; and about walks in nature, surrounded by gorgeous flowers, we're with you. (In Los Angeles right now, we are blessed with the magical and intoxicating scent of jasmines blooming everywhere!) That's why we got inspired to have our Spring Has Sprung Sale! Use Code: Spring 15. From now through March 28th, we're offering 15% off sitewide, along with Free Shipping over $30.

    Happy Spring!

    Gold Lace, Gold Henna, or Gold Glitter Henna?

    Gold Lace, Gold Henna, or Gold Glitter Henna?

    We are very proud and excited to announce that our loyal customer, Urban Outfitters, has introduced our White Lace*Gold Lace Temporary Tattoo Kit in their stores and on their website this March. This kit is exclusive to Urban Outfitters!

    When we started working on this product, we weren’t sure what to call it. “White Henna” had become all the rage online, and we were getting requests for it—except that there’s no such thing as white henna. The henna plant dyes the skin a deep reddish brown color—that’s been the case for thousands of years.

    What people were talking about is body art that look just like henna tattoos, created with a mix of white body/face paint and medical grade adhesive. The mix goes into the same type of applicator bottle used for creating henna tattoos—a soft, ½ oz plastic bottle with a fine tip—and is released onto the skin when the bottle is squeezed.

     

    Since the demand for a do-it-yourself kit was so high, we decided to create one for people who did not want to go through the hassle of figuring out how much of each ingredient it takes to get the right flow. Getting that right was a process! It took several more months to get the rest of the kit together, along with the package design, and a host of other considerations that come into play when coming up with a new product.

    Once we knew we had something good, I showed to our contact at Urban Outfitters, who loved it, and asked if we could create a “gold henna tattoo” look. We could have simply mixed gold paint with the glue, but, as you may have noticed, glitter’s a thing! So our kit allows customers who want gold henna tattoos to simply use gold glitter to set the design, as opposed to cornstarch, which is used to set the white henna designs.

    Next came the conundrum of what to call the product. We didn’t want to call it “White Henna” since that was causing confusion. The product doesn’t stain the skin white. It sits on top of the skin, dries within five minutes, and lasts 1-5 days. It does have a texture, but that goes unnoticed. It’s a temporary tattoo that is totally comfortable, and certainly a lot less noticeable to the wearer than jewelry! But it is most certainly not a henna tattoo.

    So we came up with White Lace Tattoos, because the designs created with the product, when used on the hands, look a lot like a white lace glove! Since Urban Outfitter’s kit would be offering both white and gold temporary tattoos, we started calling those Gold Lace tattoos. Seeing that the White Lace*Gold Lace kit is exclusive to Urban Outfitters, we created a kit for our other customers, which offers White Lace*Silver Lace tattoos. But, the glitter is still a factor!

    So, although our two new kits’ names are White Lace*Silver Lace and White Lace*Gold Lace, when talking amongst ourselves in the office, we call the shimmery tattoos gold glitter tattoos, gold henna tattoos, henna glitter tattoos, silver glitter tattoos, silver henna tattoos, and on and on. To us, they’re all a bunch of affectionate nicknames. Who knows which one will stick. Which do you prefer?
