Geometrical Henna

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

The basis of the design was copied from Deviant Jaewalker's deviation : [link]
The further modifications are just doodles I came up with :P



>>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!!

beautiful...and really cool design!
I tried Henna-fying my hand but the kits Henna mixture didn't work on me.
Howsoever this is really beautiful!
A-w0man's avatar
awww thankyou very much!! ^_^
oh, really? how come? what went wrong? the stain didnt come out dark enough, or the paste was too thin??
onegoodnumber's avatar
I think the paste was too thin....I also remember it being kinda soupy. Still it was really cool and I enjoy Henna a lot. The designs people make are beautiful. Plus, I might not have let it sit on my hand long enough.

Any advice?

And you are very welcome <3

henna must never be 'soupy' . its only right if it sits STILL where you apply it and it doesnt spread over your hand. Try using a different company if the one u used didnt work out?
I've had to waste a couple henna cones myself cause they came out much too liquid-y !

I really wish Henna cones were prepared with more care so there could be a standard paste and artists didnt have to find out which company is better by hit and trial !!

thank you so much for this, I will keep this in mind.
What ingredients do you use to make the henna. Thank you so much, I can't wait to do my design.
