Why Henna called a Tattoo?

There is always debate why henna is called tattoo. Personally, I do not think Henna has been legally termed as tattoo.
In old days in addition to ornaments on special occasions like wedding, henna was used for body decoration. With globalization, in late 90s, it got popularity in western countries when various celebrities (like Madonna) used henna decoration on their performances.
Since then, it is becoming fashion trend and people are using henna designs just for fun. Since both permanent tattoo and henna are applied in skin for decoration, now it is termed as henna tattoo. But, be assured, it has no relation with permanent tattoo and gets off your skin in few days to couple of weeks.

​​Our henna is made out from best henna plants grown in Rajasthan, India. Henna powder is imported and lab certified and the henna paste is self made fresh with all natural ingredients to get the perfect color. It has no chemical or dye added and is completely safe.
Henna is a plant and Henna has a dye molecule, "Lawsome" also known as hennotannic acid. This molecule breaches and saturates the topmost layer of your skin, staining the skin cells.
There are many factors that affect the stain color henna leaves on your skin. Your skin may be naturally alkaline or acidic.        
Alkalies oxidize the stain to a darker color. Your skin may be naturally alkaline, or may be exposed to an alkali.
Some parts of your skin take up more dye than other parts. Thin oily or newly formed skin takes up less stain than thick, corneated skin.
