Henna Gang

Last week a school, there was a henna artist on campus. I've always admired henna art on other women and so I signed up. In fact, a bunch of women at my school got a bit of the bindi. We're like a henna gang on campus. It looks a lot like a tattoo when the henna is freshly drawn on (though there is no pain involved). Mine wraps around my left wrist.
Five days later, mine still looks great and I have to admit that I like it a great deal. For the first time in my life I can see how people get one tattoo, and then another, and another..........

For now I'm sticking with the henna. But the temptation to do more is great.

Stop by your local Indian market. You can get Henna paste on the cheap there and draw as much fun Henna on yourself as you want. I love decorating myself in the summer months. It's a blast!

Pre-mixed henna paste that comes in tooth-past like tube is full of chemicals. Don't use it. The stuff at the the Indian market may have been sitting there for a long time, in which case you won't get good color. Book store kits have the same problem. You're best bet is to find a repectable henna artists and buy from them. There my be one in your area and they're all over online.
