Gilding - temporary body art for children and adults.

Many vendors had come from other parts of Mexico to participate. They converged on Oaxaca to not only do tattoos and piercings, but to also sell a broad diversity of related materials including: Gilding - temporary body art for children and adults. Here is a photo of gilding using turquoise, white and green glitter gel to match a little girls dress. Tubes of glitter gel are usually available at the henna table at The Midnight Sun so that children can enjoy the henna experience for a day... without any worries about smudging the pattern or staining their clothes. In this example, the design is a traditional flower pattern . The colors used in this temporary body paint make the simple pattern shine.

To see samples of gilded henna tattoo, visit The Gilded Henna Tattoo page on my website.

If you are just learning to henna, please be sure to experiment with your paste. When I first started to make henna paste, I

Quick Henna Jewel for Everyday Wear

The event was much more than a sales opportunity for retailers, however. It provided a chance for those in the business to promote their industry, source state-of-the-art and otherwise imported equipment and supplies (since many tatuadores don't get to Mexico City very often, and most imported machinery, needles and paints arrive initially in Mexico City), and entertain tattoo and piercing collectors, aficionados, and the curious, all under one roof, the Salón Señorial located across from Oaxaca's renowned Abastos Market. Quick Henna Jewel for Everyday Wear Here is a lovely example of a traditional henna pattern that works well for everyday wear in Western culture. The pattern is from the "Sangeet" pattern book. This quick henna took about 10 minutes from start to finish, and fit perfectly on the wrist. It is a "tiny" tattoo, but a lovely example of the traditional art. I am using a "wetter" paste this year, which means that the henna fl
