I just came back from staying at the Boardwalk and I did not see any Henna tattoo places there. Only in EPCOT, my 3 dd's got them there, the women was great and fast! It was $50 for all three, my 2 dd's got them over their inner wrist and one my other dd got her's on the top of her foot. Personally I like the one on the foot the best, and it seemed to hold up better. They are still on and are over a week old and they did plenty of pool time! Remember do not pick at them for the first day!!

I got a henna in Morocco last year. I had it around my wrist and it meant "elegance". It lasted for over 2 weeks and it was $20 I think. I can't wait to get another one but maybe over my hand this time!

they won't rub off under water but they will fade quicker if you don't put vaseline on them while swimming or showering

Dd11

My DD11 has wanted a henna tattoo forever. I told her she can get one in Epcot and she squealed. She plans on spending her whole $50 spending money on an elaborate henna tattoo that will probably wash off before we even leave for home. I will tell her to rub some Vaseline on it before she gets wet to help prevent it from washing off. I saw where someone else mentioned that.

Epcot is the only place at Disney where you can get henna. Though, they do have temporary tattoos at HS and Downtown Disney. Downtown Disney also has airbrush. If you get one, get it in a place that isn't rubbed a lot by clothing. I got one on my wrist once, and it lasted a little over a month.

Here is mine on my hand from EPCOT. This was right after she did it which is why its still sparkly. I did not see these anywhere on the Boardwalk when we stayed there last fall.

This is about 7 days after I got my henna tattoo at Epcot. I paid $65 or $70, I think, and I asked the artist to do whatever she would like to do.

Mine was either $25 or $28, can't remember exactly. It lasted about a week with the part on my hand fading quicker than the part on my wrist, I assume due to hand washing.

Don't worry; henna tattoos do not actually "wash off" ... they have to fade.

The actual henna material that gets squeezed out of the little cone does wash off (it's supposed to dry, first), but it actually stains the skin which must then wear off. The skin coloring will last for about two weeks; less if you're repeatedly bleaching your skin with high-chlorine pool water.

But, you don't have to worry about washing it off in the bathroom like those "temporary tattoos."

If I understand this correctly; henna stains your skin to make the tatoo. How long do you need to leave it on to get a decent stain? Does the tat artist remove the henna stuff or is that something I would need to do?
This sounds awesome..better than the airbrush ones that wash off way too quickly!
Thanks for any additional info! BTW-loved looking at the pics from those who have some.

In the picture that I posted, the Henna had not peeled off yet. Its kind of like a gel. You need to let it dry and peel off on its own. If you pick at it, the stain won't take as well. I think mine peeled off in about an hour or so. My memory is sketchy as I'd consumed a few tangarine mimosa's (the drinks in the background) that night.

You don't have to remove anything. The henna will dry up and fall off on its own over the course of the day. I had henna done on my feet at Epcot and I was told not to wash it that night, but to wash normally the next day. It lasted two or three weeks.
