Spring is officially here on the calendar .. but here in Ypsilanti, Michigan I still see a hefty coverage of brown, dirty snow still.
(snow, I love ya baby.. but you just gotta go)
I am feeling Spring – with my seedlings going strong, I felt inspired by flowers and seeds & came up with fun floral henna tattoos on the back of my dear friend. I love how the only space I had to work with on her back was the perfectly sweet little teardrop . I really like having a CREATIVE space to work with . Plus, this sweet girl just got back from a 3 week exploration trip in New Zealand & Australia so she has a nice glow to her skin. (She has such a pretty face, too)
I have been itching to do some creative henna tattoos on the back & in other sexy places. I have a creative leg henna design in mind, I just need the right gams to pull it off… coming soon.
Without further adieu, here is the sexy henna tattoos on the back that will have my friend’s lab coworkers curious . . .

A product I’d like to feature today is the Floral Longboard Design . Lately here in Ypsi, I’ve been noticing quite a few female longboarders. I thought about how many will be coming out of hibernation come April and it lead me to design this.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE to decorate pregnant bellies with henna? Since its usually a large area I am designing on, my clients and I get to chat about babies, toys, diapers and all that fun stuff. Another amazing aspect of doing henna for a baby belly is getting so see little feet & arm movements while you’re working. So adorable. Well, here is a boy baby belly design I recently did. The mommy-to-be loves lines and dots & flowers, but she wanted It to represent her little boy, so she choose a cute elephant for the middle instead of the floral design.
It took about 45 minutes to complete.

Today I did three new bridal henna designs. These are original designs. They each took about 35 minutes to do. I really love doing intricate work. It really lets me be more involved in each piece.
From The Henna Page
“For the bride, the mehndi (henna) day is a very important day. The house is decorated with flowers and filled with friends and family members and there is music and dancing. The bride’s feet and palms are decorated with beautiful, intricate henna designs. As the henna artwork signifies the strength of love in a marriage, the bride makes an effort to keep it on as long as possible. The function ends with friends and family sitting down to
an extravagant dinner”
