Henna Pattern for Back of Hand

henna tattoo back hand patternHere is a photo of a traditional henna tattoo design taken from a book of patterns I bought about 5 years ago. My client really like the stupa decoration at the wrist, as well as the full hand pattern and intricate design.

This pattern took about 35 minutes to apply. The henna paste I am using this year is a bit wetter than pastes I have used in the past, so the henna flows freely from the cone and takes a bit longer to dry. This slower dry time results in a better finished color, although it does require that you are careful with your tattoo about 15 minutes longer than last year's paste.
