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

Christmas Cookie Party!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2011 in Crafts, Henna Party designs | 0 comments

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.

I made a mac & cheese muffin recipe, a nutty-sweet brie & spinach cheese swirls and a cheese plate I am PARTICULARLY proud of on my Katie Brown cheese plate.

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:

Prepare for a Henna Appt.

Posted by on Nov 22, 2011 in Henna | 0 comments

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!

Bridal henna in Michigan

Bridal Henna in Michigan

Hello!

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.

Meanwhile, here are the still photos I took. The designs are a mix between Indian and Arabic styles. I love to blend the two styles to make a beautiful work of art.

Here in Ann Arbor, the weather has been so nice. I am thoroughly enjoying this fall weather.

I should add I am going to be at the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, Michigan doing henna on October 16th from 11am-7pm. https://rustbeltmarket.com/

The end of summer is approaching; Autumn is in the air. I love Michigan this time of the year. Almost time for apple cider and donuts.

Meanwhile, I’ve been pretty busy with henna parties. Here are some photos of recent henna designs I’ve done. I also did $2 henna tattoos at D.I.Ypsi in Ypsilanti which was a blast!
