Tattoo & Henna Design

I've been fascinated with tattoos for nigh a decade at this point. When I was younger (read: still to this day), I would draw so much on my body my mother was concerned I would get ink poisoning. In college, I entered an essay of mine about tattooing the body to a conference and had the opportunity to read it at the conference. I, of course, had a drawing on my arm while I read. 


It's still a dream of mine to be a tattoo artist. Until that dream is realized, I've found great enjoyment in tattooing people with temporary tattoos using henna. I've hennaed at festivals, parties, college programs. Most recently, I've begun hennaing my body as a way of reclaiming it and calling it beautiful and strong, even when I don't feel it.
