I have a confession: I've gone a bit crazy with henna lately. This interest was sparked by an upcoming event in a neighboring town. Each year they host a festival celebrating what once was and the present. Basically it's promoting the good ol' community mentality and values. This event includes rides, games, live music, improv shows, food that is so unbelievably mouthwatering, and a road lined with a variety of booths. All of the booths raise money for either a local business or charity. One of the booths will be raising money for veterans in the area. Their niche to get people to donate will be an opportunity to get a henna tattoo done, delicious baked goods, and competitively priced water bottles.
Obviously they need people that are semi artistically inclined to tattoo people. The head of that group contacted me asking if I could be one of the tattoo artists. Of course I wanted to help them out, so I immediately responded that I would. I probably should've asked questions regarding types of tattoos that would be done, intricacy, and authenticity to Indian designs before giving my answer since I'm inexperienced with hennaing, but I didn't because when I become excited about something I lose all higher thought processes! Yayy haha But it's all right because I found out a couple days ago that the designs we'll be offering won't be anything too demanding. *sigh of relief*
Regardless, I felt the need to practice my henna skills before being posted up in the booth, so I stopped by an Indian store to pick up the paste. With that I've been designing away and have probably been a bit too eager with it all. Gosh, give it a few more days and I'll probably have a sleeve of henna tattoos!
Here are some of my designs!
The inspiration for this tiny bike was a 10 mile ride that I had taken over the weekend... I'm ridiculous >.<
Have a lovely day and stay fabulous!!
