The second Kate Middleton does something, the world tends to follow suit. (Hello, adult coloring books!) Because of that, the Duchess of Cambridge’s new tattoo might mean you start noticing a whole lot of henna soon.
During a trip to Sunderland, England, Middleton stopped by a new arts hub where she was spotted getting a henna tattoo on her hand—a flower with a swirl, reports the Mirror. The art, which has culturally significant roots dating all the way back to Ancient Egypt, is typically used for special occasions and lasts for a few days to a few weeks, depending on the dye.
Plenty of people like trying out the temporary body art, but if you do, just be sure you’re using a healthy edition of the ancient dye. According to according to NBC 5, that means making sure it’s natural henna from dried leaves of the henna plant—not black henna, which is a chemical and can cause painful skin reactions and scarring.
