Wow that is fantastic.  I love the detail and precision you were able to get. 

How did you apply the paste to achieve this?

I used to do Mehendi on myself all the time in High School, I found I was far better at doing my left hand than my right, but I could never get really clear smooth lines like yours. 

I think you may have inspired me to try again sometime soon.

that is amazing! That design is sooo pretty.

Do you get your paste premixed or mix it yourself? And where do you get it if you dont mind my asking!

I love doing mehendi on myself but I am currently out! I usually try to do a vine and flower design on my foot before I go to the beach every year.

The mehendi I used is from one of those three dollar cones at an Indian market. A friend of mine from Markham Ontario bought it for me and I paid her back, because there's nothing like that here in Oshawa.

Oh, I'm craving henna now!  It's my "spring time fix".... staining my hands and feet always gets me over the long winter blues.  You're work looks terrific!

Check out this site for supplies: http://www.mehandi.com/

I'm not sure if they will ship henna internationally or not, but they also sell harquus.  And just about every accessory you could ever want for your henna!!

I love your design!  I love henna body art!  You can always change your designs or start over if you mess up, it is not as permanent as a real tatoo!!
It looks great!

That's really pretty. I remember there was a span of about a year that I never went out without mehendi on my hands. The only place it shows on me is my palms. I really like how well your design flows.
