[diy inspiration] Henna Tattoos

Henna, or Mehndi, body art has been a tradition for thousands of years, mostly in the Mediterranean for wedding and fertility celebrations. The beautiful and detailed art has always been used to celebrate holidays and special occasions, so why not include festivals and events? Use henna to show your personality and adorn yourself in artwork that won't smear when you are dancing the night away or camping overnight at a festival. Kits can be ordered online and the design possibilities are endless! Other than a couple of tacky tramp stamp henna tatts from the shark shops in Panama City Beach as a teen, I have never tried henna, but I can't wait to start including it in my festival outfits! Here are some of my favorite designs and placements.

(This isn't actually henna, it's watercolor crayon, but I love the design, placement, and colors! This could be a less permanent solution if you don't want to commit to the two-ish weeks that henna usually lasts.)
