Today I had the opportunity to do one of my favorite gigs – a baby belly henna design at a belly blessing ceremony / henna party in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The pregnant belly is such a beautiful canvas. Today all the ladies there were incredibly nice and complimentary.
The design she choose was a large mandala flower and she wanted to incorporate orchid lady slipper flowers in the design, too. I suggested we place one on either side of her belly, and she just loved it. The orchid design is a replication of her mother’s lady slipper orchid tattoo so that was really special. All the other ladies at the party got simple henna designs done so they could carry a piece of the ceremony with them as they left.
