Here are the options,

1)Reschedule by calling the USCIS.
2)Go and attend, and they might ask your wife to come back, if they are not satidfied. Actually my hands are dry and the officer is not satisfied, he said he might ask me to come back again.
3)I do not know how much time you have left, but go to any indian grocery store and ask them if they have any henna remover like nail polish remover. Do search online for any liquid to get rid of it.

Also wait if any similar experiences from our members.

Hope this helps, and the decision is upto you.

Henna/Mehendi will not affect fingerprint. It does not affect the ridge detail in your hand. no?

We went for FP today and my wife had henna on her hands. I was concerned about it but it never was an issue. The FP went as if she had nothing on her hands instead the FP people pleasently talked abt henna.

We went to the Atlanta office, the staff was pleasent, work flow streamlined and we were done in less than an hour although they looked and checked our hands almost four times for bandages and cuts.
