Description

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

Design was copied from Deviant Exillior. I modified the original design a bit to make it flow down to the arm. Heres the link for the original deviation : [link]




>>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!!

This is incredible.  There's so much detail and it's so beautiful and feminine!
