Henna Crown Designs

Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in Henna, henna crown, henna crown designs, mehndi traditional, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments | 5 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.

Henna Belly Designs

Posted by on Apr 20, 2014 in Henna, Michigan henna tattoo, Pregnant belly, Private appointments | 0 comments

What a fun day! Two henna belly designs at the salon today. Two friends who just happened to become pregnant around the same time decided it would be fun to get their bellies henna-ed together in celebration  . They chose a matching design they found online- from Blue Lotus Henna, I believe.  I really enjoyed doing the design that twice in a row was a-okay for me. Henna belly designs are some of my favorite henna designs to do.

This henna design for the belly is a pretty flower mandala – a design I really like because flowers make me happy .

Here are the pictures of the two matching designs – enjoy!

Phoenix Henna Tattoo

Posted by on Apr 13, 2014 in Henna, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, tattoo | 0 comments

Today a great client, one of my regulars, came by the salon today. She always has fun & different design ideas to work with. Today she had the idea to do a phoenix henna tattoo design. She came in today to have this design done to test out making it permanent.

The phoenix represents rising up from the ashes to be reborn – I think many of us have related to a phoenix at one time in our lives.

We went bold with a big phoenix henna tattoo on her back  and she loved it.

Henna Tattoo Design

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in Henna, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

Seeing that as of 2013, 45 MILLION Americans have at least one tattoo, I am often asked to do a henna tattoo design around or in collaboration with an existing, permanent tattoo – which is something I find fun and challenging because I don’t have full freedom with the skin. I have to study what the first artist did to see the style of the piece which is also a clue into what the client likes (obviously) . I have tremendous respect for tattoo artists. I feel so much pressure for bridal henna that I practice the designs over and over because this will be on their skin for their wedding . I can’t imagine the pressure I would feel if it was permanent .

Henna is so fun for people because you can really play with different looks.

Here is a piece I did recently around an existing unicorn shoulder tattoo – the client really loved it

This henna tattoo I did in the fall for a great client who had the most intriguing tattoos. I really loved the beautiful bee tattoo here on her forearm .

Fun Floral Henna Tattoos on the Back

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in Henna, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, tattoo | 0 comments

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 . . .

Pregnant Baby Belly Henna Designs

Posted by on Jan 20, 2014 in Henna, Pregnant belly, Private appointments | 0 comments

Have I mentioned how much I love to do baby belly henna designs ? ? Why.. yes, I have. This past week I have had three baby belly henna designs to do. Here are photos from my most recent client who came to the salon. She is at that perfect time to have henna designs on your belly – that 30 – 37 week mark. Just in time to have her photoshoot session, too. She and and her friend who drove her were lovely. Plus, her friend got in on some henna action, too .

For the baby belly design, she wanted it to be less of a circular, mandalla design and more flowing henna design with flowers including a henna peacock . This is what I came up with. I think she really liked it.

It makes me so happy to see others happy from my art  : )

Henna Artist in Michigan

Hello all! Happy Fall! It’s this time of the year that I am so happy to be a henna artist in Michigan because I get enjoy this beautiful fall weather. When I was a henna artist in Orlando, Florida working at Universal Studios, the people were always so fun because they were on vacation, but after a long, hot summer I need a cool Fall and chilly Winter but living in Florida, you don’t get fun season changes . Being a henna artist in Michigan , specifically Ypsilanti, Michigan is what I love.

Today I met a lovely client who wanted to pamper herself so she booked a private appointment at the henna salon. She requested fun, floral designs with vines for the tops of her hands and the tops of her feet . This was her first time having henna applied so before her appointment she read the FAQ – frequently asked questions about henna and how to prepare for her appointment.

Here are the photos of her henna on the tops of her hands and feet.

Hello! Yesterday I did henna for a mehndi party in Livonia, Michigan and wedding henna designs for a lovely bride. I worked with the bride on her arm and feet designs via email since she lives in Georgia. She did come into the henna salon for a wedding henna trial and consultation when she travelled to Michigan earlier this year. I was very happy with her henna design choices. Here are the pictures of her wedding henna :
