The henna world is similar to any artistic industry: if you use something that belongs to another artist, proper credit is due them. With henna, this applies to using someone else’s design, or even elements of it.
Giving Credit on Social Media
You will see me give credit from time to time when I replicate the design of another henna artist. For example, this beautiful design by Jason Alan of Henna Being.
I put this design on my hand, and when I posted it on social media, I made sure I gave credit to him as the artist. You also want to be careful not to put your logo on a picture of someone else’s design. Someone may see your logo and assume you designed it. Even though you applied the henna and took the picture, it’s still a no-no!
Giving Credit on Binder Pages
Give credit on your henna binder pages if you purchased a design e-book and printed it out to display at your henna booths. Each page in my binder has a copyright on it, which either belongs to me or to the person I purchased the design book from.
Giving Credit on Posters
If you print posters for your henna booth that display available henna designs, be sure to credit those designs to the right person! All it requires is a small copyright printed on the poster below the designs.
Not a henna artist? Try to tag the person who gave you your henna tattoo!
It is not necessary to give credit to your henna artist if you post a picture of your henna tattoo, but you might want to consider it! If they did a good job, tagging your henna artist in your photos is a way to help support their business and is sure to make them smile!
