I live in a City with a high Asian population, I see some incredibly intricate designs on some hands. They are fascinating, beautiful and fade graciously....

Very interesting to watch it being created.

Is it for a marriage? Looks like chocolate & you could lick it off!

Nice to see henna on display in London. As you would expect, we've loads over here. Very popular during the wedding season. http://abudhabidailyphotograph.blogspot.com/2009/03/indian-pavilion-night-of-henna.html

I saw this being done several times on television but not live like you did. It is an interesting practice to me.

Lovely. I love the lines of the hands and the focal point of the brush. The Henna tattoos are so beautiful.

I saw a lady working on the checkout in Tesco with henna'd hands.

never seen
this before -- cool

like embroidery for hands :)

re: widgets -- while programming itself (javascript & CSS) would not be a problem, doing it to meet current standards would require considerable time & learning curve -- there also are hosting & interface issues to be considered -- it's the kind of thing someone would take on if there was sufficient long-term interest and/or reward

I agree with /t. It does look like embroidery!

Anyways, just wanted to make my beaded motorcycle available to you before I list it in my shop. If you are still interested, please email me thru my website... Hope all is well! :D

I got one in Camden and it was an awesome celtic-looking butterfly on my neck. Unfortunately, it didn't last one day. I was so sad.

Such a gorgeous photograph of the artist's hands, Mo. I do like seeing people doing things. That thumb is so absolutely clear.

I like the composition of this one very much ...

Sally said...

That is exquisite.

I had that done once. It is amazing how delicate and intricate it is. great shot.

Hilda said...

I love how you've captured the application! I've only seen mehndi after it's dry and been rinsed off. I've only seen the art, not the craft. Lovely!

Cathy said...

I've never seen it being done and it's so cool. it does look like icing being piped on.
