One thing that you probably do not know about me is that I have been a henna artist for 17 years now. I got my first henna tattoo when I was 15 years old. I spent 100$ and got ONE hand done, and for a 15 year old, that was a ton of money. As a 32 year old, that is a ton of money! So I decided I would learn how to do it myself. I bought my first henna kit and started tattooing all my friends. We would even henna in the classrooms in high school, somehow we got away with it. I soon got a job doing it and it carried through college as a means to make money selling my art. Looking back on this, it was the first time I ever made money doing my art.
These days, now that I am a mom, I looooove henna'ing big beautiful pregnant bellies. I have also done some wedding henna on hands. Traditionally, henna is put on the skin for spiritual celebrations like birth and marriage. It is very dear to my heart. I wanted to share some of the henna pieces I have done in the last year or so. Also, if you are thinking of trying henna for yourself, I have been using Henna Caravan since the very beginning. Get your own kit and start decorating your skin!!
