EastCoastLife's First Henna Tattoo - WW


Last Thursday, I decided to have my first henna tattoo after seeing the beautiful tattoos this artist did for the invited guests at an event.



This little girl had a tattoo done on her leg. She was so fascinated in the art that she kept very still while the artist drew the design on her right leg.


I browsed through the many henna tattoos that the artist did while I was getting my tattoo done. I was amazed by the cool, intricate designs. I am seriously considering a henna tattoo covering my whole back when I wear my bare-back black gown on my 20th wedding anniversary in March. Yeah! That would be eye-catching. :D


My beautiful henna tattoo! I was careful not to smudge it and had to hold my hand high. I could not shake hands with the people I met later that night. :P


This is how it looked the next day, after the henna had dried up and fallen off. It attracted a lot of attention wherever I went. :)

This is the 7th day and my henna tattoo is fading ..... -_-

  9. A all-back henna tattoo will make your anniversary more memorable. Maybe you can convince your hubby to get one too. :D
