Mehndi Tattoos DESIGNS for Your Shoulder And Neck

December 30, 2015

Henna designs have gone beyond the traditional to designs that are individualistic, designs that reflect a person’s sense of style and attitude.
And no more are henna designs restricted to being done on specific parts of the body. You can see people sporting henna tattoos on their shoulders, their upper arms and even on their waist and hips. Shoulder tattoos are more popular as the henna artist has a vast expanse of skin to showcase his masterpiece.

Henna tattoos on the shoulders can be anything from traditional floral motifs and mandalas to intricate scrivener and authentic looking tattoo patterns.

Factors to be Considered When Getting a Henna Shoulder Tattoo

Firstly, let the artist have a look at your shoulders. Some people have prominent shoulder blades and certain designs may look distorted on them. In such instances, the tattoo artist may suggest the design that will do you justice and where it should be placed to be displayed to its best advantage.

Skin Color

Secondly, depending upon the colour of your skin and the colour you want the tattoo to take on, the artist must decide upon the proportion of the henna mix. If you have dusky skin, the henna mix needs to be potent enough to show up against your skin. Also, depending on how dark you want the stain to be, the artist will need to make the necessary adjustments to the henna mixture to get the desired results.

Visibility of the Tattoo – Clothes to be Considered

Another seemingly inconsequential factor is visibility. Getting a shoulder henna tattoo is all well and good. But if you are not the kind of person who wears sleeveless tank tops and backless tops that bare your shoulders, then the whole point of the tattoo is lost. Remember that henna tattoos are not permanent. They last only a few weeks. So while the stain is still bright and noticeable, you need to flaunt your tattoo as much as you can. If you’re going to be wearing long sleeved tops and clothes that cover up the tattoo most of the time, then you should consider getting it done at some other part of your body where it’ll be more visible.

And last but not the least, consider if your shoulders are your best feature. Just because shoulder tattoos are all the rage does not mean you have to get the henna tattoo on your shoulder. If you feel your ankles are your best feature, then consider getting a delicate pattern on your ankles to enhance them. When you get a henna tattoo, everyone’s attention will be drawn to it. That being the case, you need to feel confident and happy about it. So always get it done on the part of your body that you feel is one of your best features.
