Bubbly Henna by A-w0man Bubbly Henna by A-w0man
Henna applied by me on my own hand! Photo also taken by me.
Done: Nov 28th, 2011, because I couldn't sleep o.o
Time Taken: 1 Hr 30 Mins
The basis of the design was copied from this youtube video of a Henna tutorial! [link] :)
The further modifications are just doodles I came up with !

>>For those of you who are new to 'Henna', here's some info to help you understand what it is! ^_^

Henna (Lawsonia inermis, also called mignonette tree) is a flowering plant used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather and wool. It is a paste which is applied to the body and washed off a few hours later, leaving a temporary tattoo on the skin. Henna has been used to adorn young women's bodies as part of social and holiday celebrations since the late Bronze Age in the eastern Mediterranean.

Thanks for viewing my work! ^_^

Aaaaaaand one last thing (sorry, i know how annoyingly long this description already is!)
If you're interested in getting a Henna temporary tattoo like the one in the picture shown above, and you live in the United states, you can notify me on my Facebook page 'Henna-fied' [link] and schedule a date for an appointment by posting on the page wall!
You may also contact me on Twitter, here : [link] , to schedule an appointment!!
Looking forward to Henna-fying your hands soon!!

I really love this one. I like that there isn't just one pattern repeating, but quite a few.

This looks simply wonderful.
Now looking forward to an "after" picture ;) (i.e after the pasta has cracked off ;))

thankyouu <3 <3 :)

p.s. I would LOVE to upload a picture of the tattoo but the mehndi I have at hand doesnt leave a very dark stain :[

I know that is sometimes the problem, indeed. But I can't help to insist, because the result is so beautiful. If there's any sunlight available, take advantage of it, and later you can tweak the contrast in any photo editing software. I could also try and ask my friend, who is like THE henna-guru in my country, how she manages with her photos (aside from having a very light skin which reacts awfully well to henna).

I also think there's one little strange reason why the "after" pictures are good - because people who do not know anything about henna are often confused. I was watching my friend's workshop this summer at a festival, and do you know how many people screamed in terror when the paste began to crack and come off? :P They actually thought it would stay on like that, because they had :D

you know what, you are ABSOLUTELY right! :) thankyou for the great advice!!! I shall definitely put it into practice next time! :)
then I'll combine both the stain + the pre-wash henna picture into one deviation! :)

I'm glad I could be of aid.
Looking greatly forward to your next henna-travels, and the wonderful pictures. :hug:

ohhh i cant do it
i cant do it!!! D:

applied mehndi a little while ago, on my back hand and and it came out so LIGHT ! BOOHOO :(

plus, i dont want to do any of that photoshopping thing cause then it'll just feel like im deceiving people and ALSO i remove the henna off my hands RIGHT after im done taking pictures with it ON so that the stain can wash off quickly for my next application! LOL!!!!

sorry to disappoint :(

im disappointed with myself too but i..just CANT devote SO MUCH TIME to a single design 0_0 *hides*
