Henna: All Heart Temporary Tattoo Set Classic henna tattoo placement is often on the backs of the hands and tops of the feet. It goes on as a paste and the pigment gradually soaks into the skin. Bypass all of that with these temporary tattoos of classic henna patterns. Hand these designs out for a cultural event at school. Or, use them as a way to get students interested in other cultures in the classroom. Once they pick out a floral-inspired design, cut it out, and press it on with a small amount of water. They'll come away from the discussion with a greater understanding of another culture's traditions.
