Tattoo You 

Monet | Dreamstime.com

I've always wanted a tattoo, but I'm fickle. I know for a fact that two weeks after the flaming skull with snakes coming out of its eyes is painfully scratched into the skin of my forearm I'll wish I'd gotten the rainbow-riding Pegasus unicorn instead. That's what makes the idea of taking a henna body-art class at the Memphis Botanic Garden so appealing.

Henna is a Middle Eastern plant that produces a dark red pigment, and this three-hour class will touch on the rich history of henna as well as the science. But most of the class will be devoted to more practical matters, like how to develop designs and how to roll and fill your own henna applicator cones. And remember, henna tattoos are painless, and they only last for about two weeks. So you can get your current significant other's name tattooed on your chest without worrying that you may have to explain it to your next significant other. You can get the flaming skull and the unicorn.
