Can I add Indigo to henna for Body Art?

My mother in law went to a henna party and she came back with henna on one hand.The next morning the finger tip area was the darkest brown, almost black.

I would like to obtain a very dark stain like that and wondered if Indigo might be the ingredient that allowed the color to be so dark. If not, does anyone have any idea what it might be?

Hi,

Adding indigo to your henna will not help you achieve a darker stain. Indigo and henna require very different contitions to stain skin. If you want a really deep dark henna stain go for a high lawsone content henna something like Celebration.
