Henna Tattoo for Christine's New Baby

Here is a photo of a henna tattoo chosen by Christine to celebrate her new baby. She found the basic design on line at Henna Lounge drew it up adding her own embellishments, and brought it down to Midnight Sun today to get her henna. The design was ammended a bit by agreement so that the pattern best fit the contours of her stomach, and make sitting easy & comfortable.

For pregnancy tattoo I make a special, very gentle blend of lavender & tea tree essential oils to go with a pure henna powder, lemon juice & a touch of honey. This is very soothing paste, and still very effective. I also started working a bit with gilding & glitter pastes, so we were able to add some red & gold gilding to her tattoo. If you want a tattoo for your belly, please call ahead so that we can discuss your pattern in advance.

Some simple planning can make your experience more comfortable. For example, you will notice that Chris wore a midriff top & a wrap around skirt so that her clothing would not interfere with her new tattoo. As well, I knew to make her unique paste & to bring the gliding because she called ahead.
