I have a question about henna. I'm a 17 year old white girl who wants to get a tattoo when she turns 18. Before I get the actual tattoo, I want to get a henna of the tattoo (since it's not permanent but still lasts for a while) to make absolutely sure i'd want the tattoo on my skin forever before I actually get it inked. Is this appropriation? If it is, can you suggest an alternate to using henna that would be better?
yeah, I really don’t want to be a thiscouldbetacky/racist/appropriative resource guide for white people. I think you gotta figure it out on your own.
