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 :

Hello ! What a FUN Summer it has been! I have been most busy with private appointments lately because Lisse has been our main event artist for the graduation parties and birthday parties this summer.
I usually only do one public event each year and it happens to be coming up ! Summer DIYpsi 2014 is at the Corner Brewery on Saturday August 23 from 11-11 and Sunday August 24 from 12-6 . DIYpsi (dip-see) is a handmade art fair that takes place in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town District . I’ll be there in the beer garden. Come be apart of this amazing weekend!

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.Read More
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 .
Yes, that’s right, Spring is HERE! That means people remember they have skin again and like to show it!
Even though there is a woman walking around New York without a shirt (AMEN sister!) the rest of our nation may have to play the waiting game until that becomes legal. Okay, back to henna designs…
Anyways, men henna designs are almost as rare as a woman who walks around in public without a shirt. Here is a simple one for those of you looking for ” men henna designs ” . Just some simple Roman numerals along the collarbone depicting the birthdays of his parents.
And another picture of men henna designs is from a while back at my salon in Ypsilanti, Michigan
A close up shot of the tree of his tribal tattoo design
Last henna design for men today. This client wanted to try out a tattoo idea he had. Instead of going right for the tattoo, he decided to try it out using henna first. He was one happy guy when we were all done and deided he WOULD get this tattoo done permanently.Read More
Hello all! Today was a busy day at the salon. Two different party groups came in today for some henna party tattoos . It was a girls day, for sure. Lots of lovely ladies and fun girl chat makes my job a lot of fun.
Here are a few of the henna tattoo designs clients got today. These ladies came in for a 16th birthday henna party celebration. I think it was a great idea – everyone got to participate and the birthday girl got the most henna, which made it special for her.
