Henna over facial tattoos
I have facial tattoos (eyebrows, liner & lips) which is done with vegetable dye unlike the usual ink for tattoos. Since the vegetable dye is absorbed into your body, my eyebrows fade quite a bit leaving me to have them touched up every few years. I'm wondering if anyone has used henna too for touch ups? I'm going to be doing my hair tomorrow & was thinking if I go over my eyebrows with a fine brush if it might deepen the color of my brows without having to do a touch up with a needle?

 Because skin is so thin henna only gives a sad orange color on the face. This also means the stain won't last but a couple days making it a lot of effor for little benefit. This is asked about fairly often, but I can't ever remember anyone trying it and being happy with the results.

My eyebrows came out nice. A deeper auburn shade than what is already tattooed on. My skin stains well since I have olive tones, but if you don't already have the tattoos I can see where it would be orange.
