I really like the little details you added to the octopus arms , the dots add alot of dimension to  him.

Once you get hooked on henna it is so much fun.
There are some ways to make sure you are using safe , natural henna so that you get the best results for yourself and anyone else you are applying henna to.

Buy the best henna , and either mix it yourself or buy from a reputable seller. Never purchase premade cones or tubes from a foreign country and they may contain cheap additives to make the paste darker like kerosene, gasoline, lighter fluid or chemical dye that can cause rash, blisters, scars and life long allergies to these ingredients.

I use the KISS recipe:
henna
lemon juice
sugar
cajeput essential oil or lavender oil
But using this recipe and following the instructions I get dark, long lasting , safe henna. http://www.hennacaravan.com/how/how.html
mix 20 grams of pure , natural henna powder with 1/4 cup lemon juice stir well 
cover and let sit in a warm (80 degrees) place for 12 hours.
add  1.5  teaspoons sugar and  1.5  teaspoons of cajeput or lavender oil and stir well.
cover and let sit for 12 hours in warm (80 degree) place. after the time is up stir well and add lemon juice if needed to thin the paste. fill your applicator and start having fun.
THis recipe is simple, easy and works for me every time.
