New Michigan Henna tattoo Designs ! Henna arm and hand designs that are all original designs of Kelly Caroline . Today 3 of 4 of these designs were done on violin players.. how odd is that? I think its pretty cool, but very odd that I would have 3 violin player clients on the same day.
The first design is an Indian henna inspired hand
Next is a henna arm design with a mandala
Next is a henna glove design with lines and triangles for the fingers
And for her other hand was a similar design I did with triangles and lines
And finally this picture is of the sweet 16 birthday girl (the 3rd violinist) and her mom who got henna done on their hands today for her birthday. How cute are they?
Here are two recent Arabic henna designs on the hands that I did near Dearborn, MI.Read More

As a henna artist, I fair well. As a chef, however, I do not. This year I thought I would try my hand at the latter. I had a cookie exchange party for a few of my friends & family. We had some AMAZING cookies and the food I made even went over well.
The cookies that were made were just too good. We had double chocolate peppermint cookies, chocolate chip, sugar cookies, nanaimo bars (which won Best Tasting of the evening) , cannoli, Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake that my husband had delivered here, snowball cookies, snickerdoodles, peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate and rolled in peanuts etc etc etc YUMM!!
Singing carols & eating yummy treats with your friends and family REALLY makes the holidays come alive. I just love this time of the year .
Without further adieu.. here are the pictures to feast your eyes on:Read More
A question I am frequently asked is “How do I prepare for my henna appointment?” Here are a few key things to remember before having henna done and how to care for henna:
1. Henna stains the best on clean, dry skin. Please do not apply any lotions or oils to the area where you want your design. Its a good idea to shower and exfoliate before your appointment, too.
2. For brides, make sure you have someone to assist you after your appointment if your arms, hands, feet, legs will be covered in henna.
3. Be sure to eat, use the restroom, take out your contacts, etc BEFORE we get started doing your henna since it will be very difficult to do these tasks after the henna is applied to your hands.
4. Remember that henna takes anywhere from 10 – 30 minutes to totally dry depending on the environment and amount of henna applied. Be mindful of this before deciding where your design will go. The less you move before it dries, the better. You want to avoid smearing and premature cracking of the dried paste. You’ll want to leave the dried paste on for as long as you can. The longer it stays on your skin, the darker you stain can get. At least 2 hours but overnight it best.
5. When the paste eventually falls off, the design will be a light orange / yellow. It will oxidize over the next 24 – 48 hours to be a rich dark brown / mahogany color.
6. Avoid scrubbing the area with water or soap. Apply a natural oil such as sesame oil, olive oil or a waxy body balm like Mama Bee Belly Balm from Burt’s Bees.
7. ENJOY the pampering experience of having henna done!Read More

Here are a few new bridal henna designs that are original designs I created. I did a video recording of these 4 arm designs that I will upload to YouTube soon and post here, too.
