Monday Mehndi

It’s been a while since I’ve done henna. I used to be super addicted to giving myself these temporary tattoos and also attacking others with it. I picked up this cone from a local Indian food market in Oakland if your from the burgh. This type of henna is my favorite because its ready to apply and has a plastic pin you pull out of the tip. The hole is pre cut and the perfect size *cough* for the intricate designs.

This is what I came up with after a quick meditative session. I think I need to do another one on my ankle or thigh, it’s too relaxing! And oddly enough I really enjoy the earthy herbal plant scent it gives off. I looked up henna designs online to get an idea of the options then took my favorite techniques and kept adding lines, dots, and swirls. It’s pretty simple and a great summer pass time so you should try it out.
