Henna and Clown Pants

By Kendra Holliday | April 21, 2013

Every time I see someone get a tattoo, I cringe.

It seems so PERMANENT.

I appreciate the concept of body art, but prefer it to be temporary, which is why henna is perfect for me.

My friend Alice has been experimenting with henna, and has been using me as a guinea pig.

Here is her first attempt. Before – see my cute little hysterectomy scars?

After.

Reminds me of the female reproductive parts I no longer have.

It didn’t. last very long – the henna wasn’t strong enough.

So a month later, she tried again, and we were much more pleased with the results!

I LOVE this bird design. And once again, she incorporated my surgery scars into the design.

And here you can see me wearing the same shiny clown pants, but without any henna. I love being able to mix it up, over and over.

Clown pants!

Clown pants!

I love being a blank canvas.

Here’s some more henna I had a while back, and later I’ll post pics of my most ambitious henna project, which was done by Jeanjoel.

Great henna work. Alice is doing nice stuff! I can’t wait to see the big Jeanjoel project, I’ve been a fan for a while!

We tried working with this once and all we wound up doing was making a mess. Very cool artwork.
