Hello All  Grin

I've been doing a lot more Henna lately at festivals. Here is one that I did on my leg tonight. Its from an octopus design I saw online. I don't have the link for it anymore, or I would post it.

anyways, here it is.





Here is the photo of the stain it made after the paste was removed. There reason why its not as dark as my henna usually comes out is because of the place on my body where I did the design.




This photo is three days later after the henna was first applied. You can see it has gotten even darker. Henna designs get to their darkest stain 48 hours after the paste is removed.



Just a tip : to keep your henna design longer, apply a waxy balm to protect the area daily and before you get it wet. I prefer Mama Bee Belly Balm ( that I had left over from my baby being born ) 
 
 C & C welcome <3

Nicely done. I especially like the shading on the body- great line control.
