Henna 10 by Exillior Henna 10 by Exillior
I just felt a bout of boredom. Plus I wanted to procrastinate from going out grocery shopping.

I wanted to try something a bit different :D

Design: me
Hand: mine
Time taken: <1 hour
Photo: me (with my rubbish point-and-shoot)

And LOL, I love how I made a typo in my "watermark" :rofl:

Simply gorgeous work. Though, from what I've seen whilst looking through your gallery, this appears to be one of your simpler designs, it's definitely my favourite - all your henna-work is very beautiful, but to me this comes across as a classic example of less being more. The spacing between the different elements really makes the design, in my opinion - it allows one to really focus on the little intricacies.

Gah, this makes me want to mix up some paste myself again, but I know I'd be horribly out of practise xD

I thank you so much! What you describe is what I love too about this. It's easy for me to pile on loads of details on top of each other. But spacing is a far more creative challenge, and I learned loads through this one. All the orange bits on the skin show how much erasing and re-doing I've done. :XD:

I'm always horribly out of practice. After all, this is the last henna I did... and it's in February... and I never do more than one or two a month, at best :XD:

Nice job :) ! I love the deep colors of this picture ! And design of the tatoo is beautiful !
I love to do tatoo but never use henna, I'm too awkward and make too much mistakes XD !

Thank you! ^^ Ah, that is exactly why I do henna - because when you make a mistake, you can just lift off the paste (with the tip of the cone) right away - the simplest way I've ever seen to erase any mistakes :XD: If you notice, all the orange bits on my skin in this... those are all mistakes I made and took off. When the henna dries and the paste come off, these won't leave any traces.

You're welcome ! Ooh, OK ! For my part I use eye liner for my temporary tatoo, but result is really not as good as henna ! When I see your work,I'm tempt to try !

Oh wow! I find eyeliner so messy! You must be gifted to make tattoos with it. I do think you should try henna, it's a lot of fun :hug:
