I Should Do This For a Living

I'm not too shabby with the henna tube.
Sure, it took me 2 hours.
But I'm still not too shabby.
This is what it looked like right after I put it on, while the ink was soaking into my skin:Here it was the next morning, when I woke up and scraped off the dried henna paste:It'll stay on for about three weeks. They gave me enough for 30 tattoos. The dye only lasts for four weeks... so looks like I'm going to be covered in tattoos soon.
I have to save enough to give Drew a tattoo when he comes over. I really want to do it on someone else!

A few people noticed it at work. They all thought it was cool, so it felt worth it.
I like looking at it. It's actually really intricate across my wrist. There's little suns among the ruffles.
Once I run out, I'll just buy a refill kit.
It's a great way to kill time, and do something a little funky.

If YOU want to experiment with the art of henna, visit EarthHenna.com
They shipped ROCKET fast, for a good price. And the instructions are ridiculously easy to follow.
Honestly, it would be something fun to do with your kids. It's much more personal than a normal temporary tattoo. It actually stains your skin. Plus it's non-toxic since it's completely natural. They even make a kit specifically for kids.
Too bad I didn't look into doing a blog review for them. Would've been neat to see if they'd let me test it. Oh well! At least I've got a kit for myself!

Erin said...

Wow, that is really neat. Does it mean you have to be an artist to do it? (For some strange reason, I was thinking it was like one of those tattoos my boys get where you put water on it and it releases onto your skin.)

It turned out really nice! My one best friend in high came in with her hands all done up every now and then because the girls in the Asian Club would practice on each other.

Visiting from Yaya's place...

My cousin does Henna tattoos part-time, at fairs and stuff. It's hard work, and she's developed carpel tunnel as a result, but she still enjoys it.
