On Tuesday night a group of students got together to talk study abroad. One of the students had recently returned from India and asked me if I would be willing to help do henna at the gathering.

DISCLOSURE: I have NEVER been hennaed, let alone used henna.

But I was willing to give it a shot. In the end, it was much like piping a cake. We looked up designs online and in an hour I tattooed five of the students. Overall, I was pretty excited about how they turned out. We all decided this would be a great activity for a birthday party or ladies night. I just need a bit more practice!

    I took a year’s worth of mendhi lessons while living in India- not quite as easy as piping icing, is it? When you see Hindu bridal mendhi done its totally mindblowing, it takes hours and both the artist and the sitter have to to so patient.
    I’m glad you had fun with it! It was quite brave of you to jump right in :]
