weekend distraction: henna/mehndi

This has been on my to do list for at least four years. I find mehndi such a beautiful art – every design different, with traditional elements modified and combined in endless variations. The designs can be as simple or as ornate as you like.

I love the idea of a design on my body but a tattoo is too permanent for me, I don’t think I could ever decide on anything, or accept the loss of the option of nothing. Enter mehndi (henna as body decor).

Finally I have the henna powder and the little applicator bottles with the special nibs (which I got three years ago! I had good intentions), now it’s just a matter of practice. Imagine on the feet in the summer with gladiators. Would be stunning.
