Okay...not the results I was looking for. I am convinced that I will need to use some kind of a different applicator. The design lines on my foot are the perfect width but the design is too light and the design on my wrist is the perfect color but too thick, I need to figure out the in between.
I also need to figure out a way to get the design drawn on paper and transfer it to my skin first like when you get a regular tattoo...I can freehand designs pretty well but it was really hard to get that control with a bottle or paintbrush and keep it even, kinda looks like a little kid did it and I am WAY more artistic than that LOL!!
I took a couple of pics & had hubby take some so you can see the finished designs but I'll be living with a bit of a mess until it all washes off :o) The average life of a henna tattoo is 7-14 days depending on location and care. My foot should be gone soon and as I mentioned before I am a chronic hand washer to I'll be sure to include my wrist each time to speed it up.
I'm not giving up though...I WILL get this figured out and have fun with some designs until I can get myself another real tattoo....my next being and angel on my left shoulder in memory of my mom.
Earlene posted concerns over safety...you're a sweetheart! Henna is absolutely safe. It is a natural dye powder mixed with water & ucalyptis oil that just stains the top layer of the skin. The only danger is irritation if you have sensitive skin.
So here are the final results.....
Have a happy Sunday ~Kriss~
