Bridal Henna in Michigan

I met with a great bride-to-be today at my henna salon. She’s marrying her fiance in Mackinaw Island and came to Ypsilanti first to have her bridal henna for her wedding. She really liked the paisley / floral design for the top of her arms. Here are the pics. I can’t wait to see the photos from her wedding.

Bird Design Henna

Posted by on Sep 7, 2012 in Henna, Henna Party designs, mehndi traditional, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

Here are a few pics from a henna session last night at the salon. A family came in to have henna tattoos to celebrate their cousin coming back into town from Washington D.C. where she was an intern at NPR ‘s “All Things Considered”  . That’s such a cool position!

Anyways, on to the pictures of the bird design henna on the hand – I think this bird is a sparrow.  The other designs are two hand designs and a foot tattoo. One is a triquetra turned into a flower and the other hand is a floral henna design recreation from an ebook.  The foot was a custom request for a henna ankle bracelet with the flower falling down her foot.

Henna Party in Traverse City, Michigan

Here are the photos for the Indian henna party in Traverse City, Michigan. It was a fusion wedding- so there were lots of people unfamiliar with henna which made it fun for me to explain the art of henna to them. Also, I really love Traverse City and eating at Amical – one of my favorite restaurants.

Here are the pics:

Man Henna Design  – Henna Michigan

 

I love doing henna tattoos for men – it really gets me to stretch my “henna tattoo muscle” outside of flowers & paisleys . Today I got to do henna tattoo for a cool guy who wanted a nature scene on his arm, with a different wave, inspired by a Sublime box set cover here :

Here’s my take on it because he wanted a more abstract wave :

Jamie Bourgeois – Textile Artist

Posted by on Jul 3, 2012 in accessories, art, clothing, Crafts | 0 comments

My friend Jamie Bourgeois is a huge inspiration to me. She is a very thoughtful textile artist with a message on how humans interact with their environment.

(psst! I want this dress so badly!.. she needs to make many more of these..)

jamie bourgeois, colony, fungi dress

Having graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design, she recently completed a series named Homogeneous :

“A series of screen printed silk scarves which explore the classification of non-human organisms in order to see more clearly into how we can perceive ourselves as humans, as entities with the same basic needs and fundamental desires as all living beings.”

EXTINCT

jamie bourgeois, scarves, homogeneous

99% of all living species that have ever lived on this planet are now extinct.”

PARASITE

jamie bourgeois, scarves, homogeneous

“Parasites live on or in a host organism at the expense of the host, benefiting only itself.”

INVASIVE

jamie bourgeois, scarves, homogeneous

“Invasive species invade foreign ecosystems, deplete resources, and crowd out other species.”

 All I can say is : incredibly inspiring, thought provoking with detail to make your head spin!  I can’t wait to see what Jamie has in store for us in the future.

My henna tattoo art was part of a New York Times Article – > The All Girls Prom  picture 3 on the slideshow.  I was really proud to be apart of such a great event – an all girls prom in Hamtramck, Michigan so girls who cannot “party with boys” as they said to me, could have a prom. The girls had a great time and I really enjoyed doing henna for them. I hope they make it an annual affair.

Indian Bridal Henna Michigan – Mehndi Party

Hello! I just got back from my trip to KawKawlin, Michigan  to do Indian Bridal Henna for a very sweet bride whose destination wedding is to Jamaica. She wanted elaborate Indian mehndi from her elbows to finger tips on the palm side and elaborate but less intricate design on the back of her hands. She also wanted to incorporate the peacock in her design. I also did her feet with pretty flowers and paisleys. I love the way it came out! I hope you like it, too.

Henna Party Michigan – Baby Belly

This weekend I got to be apart of a very special henna party for a lovely pregnant girl and do henna on her baby belly. She’s having twins and her family & friends from New York  & Tulsa flew/drove in to be apart of her celebration. I felt a lot of love at this henna party. All the guests got some henna done on their hands or feet and sat and watched the mommy-to-be get her belly decorated with a tree design that she found online. Enjoy!
