Fine Line Henna Palm - Paste on skin

Fine Line Henna Palm - Paste on skin After browsing through the collection of traditional henna tattoo patterns from India, my client chose this design. To be sure, this is a modified version of the pattern as we were having henna party at the Midnight Sun. For a private party, please contact the studio by phone or e-mail. Henna is available by walk-in appointment only on Saturdays from 1:00 until 5:00 in Five Points. Sometimes Spirit Vision Henna offers mehandi at the First Friday party in Five Points at Bead Here Now. The best way to get your henna is to give a call.

Cajeput Oil and Pomegranate Juice! Great Henna Color

Cajeput Oil and Pomegranate Juice! Great Henna Color I used cajeput oil in this mix to get this great finished color only 14 hours off the skin. This is the 2007 crop of Jamila henna giving this good color. The henna paste was allowed to remain on the palm of the hand for about 6 hours. I was lucky to get this foto before the beach party. I am happy to share it with you. For those new to Spirit Vision Henna.. this is a "chef's choice" pattern. It is an easy way to get a unique henna tattoo that fits your style & your budget.

You must be attentive to your new tattoo, and keep it as clean as possible to ensure that it heals as cleanly as possible so you prevent infection and end up with the nicest looking tattoo possible. Kissing Fish Henna Tattoo - Henna by Ann George Here is a great tattoo pattern from the collection of Catherine Cartwright-Jones, rendered as best as possible by yours truely, Ann George... aspiring henna artist . This tattoo was chosen for its meaning as well the visual beauty of the design. These two fancy goldfish are kissing in a little spray of bubbles. I love the flowing detail of their fins and tails. This is a great tattoo for a Pisces woman. I used a liquid paste & fine tip on the plastic cone to make this design possible. If you are new to henna tattoo and are trying to find some great patterns to share with your customers, please be sure to visit Tap Dancing Lizard! The Sangeet book is a favorite! You may notice a little bit of color that seems to be running fr

Quick Henna Tattoo - Peacock Pattern for Back of Hand

Quick Henna Tattoo - Peacock Pattern for Back of Hand While the healing stages of a tattoo will be as unique to each individual as there are people in this world, the tattoo healing process does follow a general pattern. The specifics of each tattoo's healing process will depend on the different skin type of the individual, the location of the tattoo on the body, an the techniques of the tattoo artist. These factors can all cause a variance in the healing process from individual to individual. Many thanks to Ron & Rachel for this foto of the finished color of a henna tattoo design inspired by the little henna booklets I received from India. Of course this design is not as intricate as the one in the photo, but we were having "First Friday in Five Points" so everyone got a little something. On Saturday afternoons at Midnight Sun I usually have a bit more time to spend with everyone. If you want a more complex design, it is best to arrive @ 1:30 ... befor

Moroccan henna in Morocco mehndi body art tattoos

Moroccan henna in Morocco mehndi body art tattoos You will be given aftercare instructions by your tattoo artist. These aftercare instructions differ from artist to artist. My recommendation to you is if in doubt about anything, always go back to your tattoo artist before seeking the help of a doctor. Your tattoo artist can take a look at your tattoo and tell what to do if their is a problem to correct any healing problems. I learned so much about mixing a good paste from this video. Now, my henna is much more liquid, is easier to apply quickly, and give a deeper color as it dries more slowly. Thanks to this fine artist, my work is much improved.

Bridal Henna Tattoo for Brooke - Original Henna Pattern

Bridal Henna Tattoo for Brooke - Original Henna Pattern If your tattoo artist cannot help, they should send you for medical attention from a doctor. If they do not, then of course, you must go yourself to make certain that your health is not at risk. This is your responsibility. Brook designed this unique henna tattoo for her wedding day as we went along. I was very lucky to feel pretty good about drawing trees so that I felt pretty well qualified to help design the pattern for her. She sent me some samples by email of styles she liked. As well, she looked through some of the pattern books I brought to our appointment before deciding on an asymmetrical tree design. The patterns she had sent me had a Turkish feeling which I tried to include in the style of the leaves, and the spacing of the lines. The backs of the hands were done very simply, again with an asymmetric design offering an Arabic look. The pattern she chose for the feet was a traditional "sandal" styl

Impromptu Butterfly Henna Tattoo

Impromptu Butterfly Henna Tattoo Many times doctors don't know much about tattoos and will prescribe unnecessary medications that may harm your tattoo's healing process. Some doctors may even be biased against tattoos. That is why I suggest that you go to the tattoo artist first if you suspect their is a healing problem with your new tattoo. The artist works with tattoos day in and day out and is familiar with the best way to heal their work. Here are photos of a butterfly tattoo garden I did on Saturday. My client really enjoys floral designs & free style henna , so I am able to try new patterns. The first photo shows the design on the inner wrist. The second photo shows the design as it moves from the inner wrist to the outer arm. In this way, there is a little bit of henna pattern visible, but the main pattern is "hidden". I am still working to perfect my butterfly skills, and hope to post more fotos in the future. To see larger images, just cli

Tribal Henna Tattoos from Midnight Sun

When you leave the tattoo studio, you will have a bandage on your new tattoo to protect it from outside contact. This bandage should be removed 2- 3 hours after getting your tattoo. Your tattoo may bleed a little for the first 24 hours, remember, your new tattoo is akin to an open wound. Tribal Henna Tattoos from Midnight Sun Here are three little photos of tribal style henna tattoo people ordered at the Midnight Sun on Saturday June 7, 2008. The henna patterns for the back of the hands are derived from traditional components from African patterns. The bold snake & bird tattoo is a favorite of one of my favorite customers! This pattern is made possible for her by the generosity of Catherine Cartwright-Jones who has published so many patterns for henna artists to use! Just click the little photos for a larger view.

Henna at Bead Here Now! Five Points Block Party

Before you remove your bandage, make sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water, in between the fingers, and under the fingernails. Then dry your hands with a clean paper towel. Do not use any old towel that is laying there, or even a clean towel as lint may be transferred to your hands. Henna at Bead Here Now! Five Points Block Party Spirit Vision Henna is happy to be invited to offer henna tattoo tonight , Friday June6, 2008 at fabulous Bead Here Now for the Five Points Block Party. This is a good time to come by & get a little henna on the hands, wrists or arms. Party settings often require that you pay a bit more attention to keep your henna smudge free until it's dry. Of course if you want a lovely tattoo for the foot - the evening is a good time. The design to the left really requires that you leave barefoot. If you want to keep enjoying the block party, a foot tattoo may not be your best choice. Perhaps the ankle? Bead Here Now is located at 1051 Park

Kanji Henna Tattoo for Men

Make sure you have not let a large amount of blood dry on your bandage so that it sticks. Be very, very gentle as you remove your bandage so as not to start the tattoo bleeding again. If you just rip off your bandage, you can mess up the appearance of your new tattoo, and you don't want to do that, now do you? Kanji Henna Tattoo for Men Many thanks for this finished color photo of a Kanji henna tattoo on the wrist. Kanji is an excellent choice for men as it presents a tribal look and brings the advantage of a personal or spiritual meaning. While Kanji is often applied to the upper arm, I find it best to put spiritually significant Kanji over the pulse point on the wrist. For those of you new to pulse point therapy, the idea is to put power symbols over areas where the blood is close to the surface of the body, and where the pulse is easily felt. The purpose is that when the blood passes under the image it is blessed by, or attuned to the meaning of the symbol. This part

Henna Peacock for the Ankle

Wash your tattoo gently, very gently with anti-bacterial soap and water to clean it. Do not scrub your tattoo, do not use a washcloth, or anything else other than your fingers or hand to clean the tattoo. Do not rub, but "pat" the tattoo as you wash it. Then, when you are finished, pat the tattoo dry with a clean dry paper towel. Or, use clean toilet paper even, if you don't have any paper towels on hand. Henna Peacock for the Ankle Here is a quick henna tattoo for the ankle . As you can see from the photos, there is still a gentle trace of a floral henna pattern in place on the foot... so we used that as the ground for the peacock pattern. I do use a heavier line for tattoos on the ankle.. I find this gives a bold look that lasts well... and is easy to see. If you are hoping to give henna a try, but haven't made it to Midnight Sun on Saturdays, I will be a "Bead Here Now" on Friday June 6, 2008 at 6:00PM. A pattern like this takes about five minu
