Fish Bones Henna

Henna applied by me on my own hand! Photo also taken by me.
Done: 05-11-11 For Eid ul Azha!
BELATED Eid Mubarik to all of my Muslim Brothers and sisters!!!

THIS design was copied from Deviant Jaewalker's deviation : [link]
I just modified the original a teensy weensy bit at the lower part of the design. :)

>>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!

Looking forward to Henna-fying your hands soon!!

:D i didn't take a pic unfortunately... one of my friends used to always have henna that her mom would do for her. and then she'd try to explain it to me and it would just go over my head.... haha :)

it isnt too hard to understand ! its just this natural paste that leaves an orangish stain on your skin after you wash it off!! ^_^
