Kelly Caroline Henna Artist Michigan

HOORAY!

February 27th we are hosting “Celebration Henna Crowns” at the Wyandotte Public Library, Bacon Memorial District Library . “Celebration Henna Crowns” is an afternoon of beautiful henna designs for men, women, and children with alopecia or undergoing chemotherapy. The event is from 2:00-5:00 pm.

Henna Crowns offer a beautiful alternative to the traditional hats, scarves, and wigs that many use. Henna is a natural way to beautify the body and celebrate life. This is a free event for anyone who has lost his or her hair due to chemotherapy or alopecia.

“Kelly decorated my bald head when I lost all my hair to chemo treatment.” said Patricia Berry from Ypsilanti. “The design was beautiful and her presence was lovely at the celebration henna party we threw to mark the event.  She’s an amazing artist, a consummate business professional and a good soul.”

Guests may choose from floral designs, tribal and geometric designs, or bring their own ideas. Each guest will get a unique, personal design. It is recommended that the head is free of lotions or oils prior to the henna being applied. There will also be brief presentation of the history and use of henna as well as how the natural paste is made from organic henna leaves and pure essential oils

The event is free, so call to reserve your spot (734) 536-1705

Sangeet Henna Artist Michigan

Sangeet Henna Artist Michigan

Oh boy have I had such a fun summer! So many of you have had excellent henna parties all across the state of Michigan and I and Lisse have been able to attend as your henna artists. Lisse and I have both travelled to Traverse City and Cadillac Michigan for different events : a henna workshop at the Traverse City Library  , two graduation parties and a few corporate events. I have been to Canton, Royal Oak, Troy and Rochester Hills for many Michigan high school grads this summer and Lisse has been to Saline, Ann Arbor, and Dexter for birthday parties and girls nights. My henna studio in Ypsilanti has been buzzing with private appointments all season. We thank you for such an amazing Summer and are looking forward to a great Autumn.

This past week I did two henna parties for the same family, who previously had me as their henna artist for their son’s wedding two years ago in Cincinnati. Now it was the daughter’s turn to be married, and I have to say how thrilled I was to be working for this great, warm, friendly and super fun family again. On Wednesday was the bride’s mehndi party for her closest friends, aunties and family members. I was overwhelmed at how much love and joy was in the room! I also got to meet a few new ladies, including Monika who’s musing blog is over at Quibbling : Observations of the World Around Me - if you like to take a deep observational look at the ordinary, check her work out.

On Friday was the Sangeet at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti. A Sangeet is a party the day before an Indian wedding, filled with fun presentations, dances, speeches, and games put on by the bride and groom’s family and friends. I always have a great time attending a Sangeet as a henna artist because you get to see the fun and silly side of the families. Not to mention the amazing color and decorations! The decorations were done by the ladies at JDV Events . Go look at their AMAZING gallery of weddings including their traditional weddings as well as their fusion weddings – so lovely. I snagged some pictures at the Sangeet this weekend. I was set up in this colorful jewel-toned lounge for henna.

I also got a few photos of the henna tattoos from two days before that were done at the Mehndi party. It’s rare when I see designs after they have walked away! Such is the life for henna artist Michigan .

And of course, no Indian wedding post would be complete without seeing the bride’s mehndi ! I was so lucky I got to spend so much time doing this lovely bride’s henna because she is such a loved person by her friends and family, and I can see why!

She wanted traditional henna, fitting for a bride.

Permanent Tattoo Designing

Posted by on Apr 11, 2015 in Henna, Henna Party designs, Henna Tattoos Michigan, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

Hello Everyone! Here in Michigan we have been blessed with more and more sunshine lately, allowing us all to enjoy being outside more! I do love this time of the year. My flower garden is starting to sprout and I’m looking forward to a long growing season.

In other news, lately especially, I have been getting 1-2 requests per week for permanent tattoo designing for ladies as well as copyright requests for drawn art I have done to be permanently done by professional tattoo artists. I have always had clients at the salon have henna done at the salon to test out a permanent tattoo, which is a great idea.

I love that my art can touch individuals in such a way that they want to have it forever. I want to share a few emails I have gotten lately about permanent tattoo designing :

“I have absolutely fallen in love with one of your henna tattoo designs and I am actually interested in having it permanently tattoo-ed on my body” -B.K.
 
“This design catches my eye because it is like a Mandala, but very nature/floral which is something that is absolutely me. It is a beautiful reminder of how complex we are as human creatures, so beautiful and elegant, like flowers – and yet so connected to earth, simple, organic, fragile, like flowers.” – Brittany
 
“I would love for you to design something fun for me! I want to get it on the top of my foot. I definitely want it to be circular. A little bit about me that may help design– I am a yoga teacher so I work barefoot. I LOVE elephants!” -S.K
 

“Kelly! I LOVE THIS!! Thank you so much. I am making an appointment somewhere around Ann Arbor for the end of April/May. I will definitely keep you posted and give you credit in all social media posts. Again, thank you so much. I really appreciate this. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to promote you” – K

“First I’d like to tell you I absolutely adore your work. Every piece is just gorgeously done. I’m interested in tattooing one/two of your designs on my hip. I’d like permission to do that. I’d be looking to join two pieces together for the whole tattoo.” – Marisa

“I just wanted to share that I got one of your designs as a tattoo last April! I get sooooo many compliments! Love it!” – Whitney

“I saw it on Pinterest and fell in love. I looked at it for a month and I realized I’ld love to have it on my body forever. I now have seen it on my body these past couple day and I love it even more!”  – Amanda

*Blush* Thank you ladies – those words touch me deeply. Thank you!

Here are some photos of the henna tattoo designs of mine that have been turned into permanent tattoo designs and drawings that have been made into permanent tattoo designs as well.

Henna Tattoos – Baby Belly Henna

Posted by on Mar 22, 2015 in art, Henna, Henna Party designs, Henna Tattoos Michigan, mehndi traditional, Michigan henna tattoo, Pregnant belly, Private appointments, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

Happy Spring everyone! Starting to see more skin lately, here in the great state of Michigan. The majority of the Arctic weather has about passed here and once again it is the beginning of sandal & tank top weather which means the salon is starting to be buzzing with clients once again.

Lately the majority of my clients have been lovely mothers-to-be getting baby belly henna, pregnancy henna, prenatal henna (whatever you call it, it is so adorable!) I have said it before and I’ll say it again, as a henna artist in Michigan, one of my favorite henna designs is prenatal henna – mandalas henna designs, tree henna tattoos, floral henna – all of it is so fun!

Check out my latest henna tattoos for pregnant women . For the first one here, this is the second time I have gotten to do a henna design for this mother. The first time she was carrying twins with this tree design some of you might remember

This time around, she wanted a tree, but since it wasn’t twins, she wanted a similar design.

We did a single tree design with 5 flowers around it, symbolizing each member of her growing family. So sweet.

At her appointment, she had a few friends gathering around her as her support group. They each got henna tattoos done as well. Here are a few:

Another fun appointment lately was for a set of two good friends who were about 3 weeks apart in their pregnancy so they decided to get henna tattoos together to celebrate their upcoming births.

One of the women chose to have a mandala henna tattoo with a floral theme.

Her friend chose also a symmetrical mandala design but with an OHM symbol in the center to represent peace for her birth.

Streaming Conference 2014

Posted by on Oct 13, 2014 in art, Crafts | 4 comments

This weekend I had the great pleasure of attending the Streaming Conference 2014 at Rochester College  . It was an event with great speakers including Richard Beck , Greg Boyd, Sara & John Barton, and Jennifer Rundlett. I found about about the conference through ReKnew.org.

I wanted to be involved so I volunteered to help in any way I could.

The organizers of the event commissioned me to take their logo for Streaming and paint it across wood pallets.

What a great project that turned into! I really enjoyed working with a variety of materials : wood, paint, photoshop, digital projection, my belt sander and of course, a drill!

Here is a picture of the logo :

This is a picture of a few wood pallets as I was disassembling some and adding boards to the others to make a complete pallet with no spaces

This is one quarter of the complete piece – it ended up being 12 feet long by 4 feet high so I worked at it in segments inside ((it just happened to rain all weekend))

and here’s how it came out, installed in the theatre at Rochester College

Beck’s talk was very moving – his work with maximum security prison inmates is astounding. It is incredible when an individual can resonate with an outcast group of unloved souls.

Greg Boyd’s presentation was outstanding. He crammed so much theology in 45 minutes that brains were spinning when he got done serving it up! AWESOME

A lovely bride from this weekend in Novi. She chose lovely henna designs for her engagement ceremony henna. She wanted traditional Indian style henna with paisleys for the top of the hands and mandalas with negative space for the palms.

I just couldn’t get over that hand embroidered pattern on her dress!

We are collaborating for a secret project (that won’t be secret for long) and I am excited to show you a sneak peek of the henna crown design I did . I really loved working with this sweet model – she was so fun and already had her head shaved like that *love* .

That’s one of my favorite things about being a henna artist – each client is has a unique form to work with.

The design starts to develop itself based off the person. 

Here’s the sneak peek of my latest henna crown design for our model.

Henna Drawing

Lately I’ve been wanting to draw on ol’ fashion paper with a marker so this is what I came up with! Of course, its a henna drawing.

I love to practice henna designs on paper.

I think this design would be so sexy on the back between the shoulder blades or for a baby belly design.

As promised, here are the henna party pictures from the 2-day event for a great bride. I really enjoyed meeting all her family – traveling from all over the world from San Francisco, CA  to Brooklyn, NY to Frankfort, Denmark ! The second day’s event was held at the lovely Dearborn Inn in Dearborn, Michigan.

It’s not often I am around to see the bridal henna stain the next day but since I was, I made sure to get a picture of her henna 24 hours after it was applied.

Day 1 – henna application

Henna Horse Tattoo Design

More and more nowadays people are coming into the salon to try out a tattoo design in henna before they have it done permanently – which I think is a great idea. I can tell you first hand, trying out a tattoo with henna first has helped guide many of my clients in their decision. I’ll even meet with the same client, multiple times to try the same tattoo design in different spots and sizes.

Today I did a henna horse tattoo design trial for a client.

She picked out the horse tattoo from Pinterest and I replicated it in henna.

She really liked it and plans on having it done permanently .

Henna Crown Designs

Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in Henna, henna crown, henna crown designs, mehndi traditional, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments | 4 comments

Henna crown designs are henna designs applied to a shaved head – usually due to hair loss from chemotherapy treatments. Henna crown designs are a great way to celebrate life and adorn yourself with art – in the midst of a hard situation. My most recent henna crown design was for a great girl, who was on her way to the 7th annual stupid cancer OMG2014 Summit for Young Adults .

And for the record, cancer IS stupid .

You can check out the video for the last year’s conference here :

OMG2013 Sizzle Reel from Stupid Cancer on Vimeo.

Note * Is henna safe when you have cancer ? My answer is to check with your doctor before having henna applied because every medical situation is unique. I have never had a client being treated chemotherapy have any negative reaction to henna. That being said, check with your doctor first. Before you have henna applied, you should ALWAYS check the ingredients with the artist to ensure the henna paste only has henna leaves, pure essential oils (ex:  tea tree, lavender or eucalyptus ) , sugar, & water. This is true for anyone having henna done, but ESPECIALLY true for people who have cancer or extremely sensitive skin . Never (without exception) let anyone use “black” henna on your skin.

As for her henna crown designs , she brought in a few ideas with flowers and leaves and paisleys so I just combined them all together for one great look .

She was really thrilled with the results.
