Mehndi- Henna Tattoos

It's Artisan's Week here at NTNU! The Art Department is doing henna tattoos (the process is more accurately called Mehndi) and just had to give it a try.

The whole process is very simple, henna paste is applied, then peeled off after it dries. It'll last for about two weeks~

So lovely~ It took about 20 minutes to do, and it was certainly worth the wait!

Here's me and the super nice art major that did the Mehndi for me.

Here's a before and after shot. It's a orange-ish brown at the moment (it's darkened somewhat since the photo was taken), and it's supposed to keep changing shades of brown before it fades.

Apparently this is a tradition brides in India. The bride wouldn't start doing household chores until after the design fades. So I'm vehemently refusing to take out the trash for two weeks! *Roommates send death-glares*
