Henna: Mystery Temporary Tattoos Conventional henna designs draw a lot of their inspiration from shapes and forms found in nature. This series of temporary tattoos is no exception with butterflies and smooth curves. They're perfect to hand out for a cultural event at school or to use as a visual aid in the classroom. You can emphasize the main points of your cultural discussion with these floral-inspired designs. Have the students pick a design, cut it out, and press it on with a small amount of water. They'll have a visual reminder of what they learned that day and a better understanding of another culture's traditions.
