Engagement Mehndi party henna – Henna Michigan

Henna Michigan

 

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!

Here is the picture of her wedding henna design :

Henna Tattoo on the Back

Posted by on May 19, 2014 in clothing, Henna, henna back designs, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, tattoo | 1 comment

I always get the question :

How long does henna last?

My answer is that it really depends on the area you have it done. The stain takes a little longer to develop fully on softer areas of the body, like the back. Usually though, henna lasts 10-15 days with the hands and feet lasting the longest.

Five days ago I did this henna tattoo on the back design . Today I got a chance to capture a picture of it. The stain came out so dark ! The dark brown color should last about 1 week and then gradually fade. Check out my newest henna tattoo on the back . This is day 5 for her henna design.

I love to do big, trailing flower designs on the back.

Henna Party Pictures

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

Posted by on Apr 30, 2014 in Henna, Henna Party designs, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

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.

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 . . .

Henna Tattoos for a Party

Tis the season for baby bellies ! I had a great opportunity to do a fun baby belly design and henna tattoos for a party at the same time here in Ann Arbor at the Bead Gallery . The mommy-to-be was having a boy so she wanted a sun for her son , but still some flowers so I did a “son-flower” (sunflower) design with floral elements around it.

We also did henna tattoos on both her hands to compliment her baby belly design  ::  see more baby belly designs here

Henna Artist in Michigan

Posted by on Oct 4, 2013 in Henna, mehndi traditional, Private appointments | 0 comments

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.
