Henna Bracelet for Mindy of LockStar, Inc.

Here we go... a "Chef's Choice" henna tattoo for Mindy!
For those of you new to henna tattoo, "Chef's Choice" is my term for "Here is my hand.. please do what ever design you like."
Once I know how much a client wants to spend, and I have a general idea about the style of henna they like.. I start.

It seems as if Henna forms its own relationship with each person, and their design just evolves. A case in point is this "slave bangle" style tattoo for Mindy, a stylist at BLU... where you can get a henna tattoo almost every Saturday.

Please note that this is a photo of the henna paste still on the skin. The finished color is not black, but some shade of reddish brown. I hope to be able to publish a photo of the finished color.. but we have to wait at least two days.

Sexy Wings Tattoo in Henna

I was really hoping for a change to do a sexy, unique back piece in henna.. and I am very happy to post this picture.

If you think henna tattoo is limited to hands and feet.. think again!

It really can be applied almost anywhere, and with time & attention to detail, good powder & lots of lemon sugar ( ok.. and maybe a blow dryer) you can get good color.

I look forward to seeing the finished color of this tattoo... I am hoping for a rich dark brown!

All best wishes,

Ann George
