I love drawing on people, these where done last spring and summer.

The colored designs are water color pencil and the brown designs are henna.  I used the colored pencil to draw on people first and then hennaed them.  Henna stains the skin, leaving a design on the skin after the paste comes off.

I'm new so I had to link to the images

My own designs:

Irish Soccer Fan


Memorial Cross


Dolphin (waves from The Henna Page "How To" Patterns Volume 2)


Inspired Designs:

Tare Pandas (Sanrio character)



Dragon (I used a coloring book page as a reference)



Hearts (from The Henna Page "How To" Patterns Volume 2)

Thank you! Have you checked out the free pattern books on the henna page, they break the patterns down into really simple and easy to do steps, I've seen people who can barely draw turn out awesome pictures from there instructions.
