Description

Henna has been practiced since time immemorial as a way to celebrate weddings and other holidays. Brought to the western world by the original Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and south Asian practitioners, this ancient art is now used by the young and old to celebrate holidays, vacations, birthdays, or just because! Everything from traditional mehndi flowers, spirals and medallions to modern hearts, clover, spiders, superhero logos, names, bible verses and pretty much anything you can imagine can be done with henna. After drying and flaking off of the paste, the stain left behind lasts about 2-4 weeks depending on skin care and washing practices. After that it's 100% gone and only remembered through pictures. I use only all-naturual ingredients, no "black henna" or caustic chemicals in my paste, making it safe for the whole family. Henna powder (made from dried and crushed leaves of the henna plant) mixed with sugar, lemon juice and essential oils are the only ingredients in my mix. I mix it all myself and use it not just on clients, but also on my whole family, including kids. Good times can be had by all, without the permanence of tattoos!

General Info

I haven't been doing henna long, just over a year, but I have been artistic my entire life. From doodles and moms-refrigerator art as a kid all the way up to paintings and an aborted attempt to major in architecture in college, I find certain artistic pursuits fun, soothing and great to share with others.

I liked this design by @the_hennaverse (jdornacopaea henna) so much that I just had to do it myself (with a slight tweak at my clients request). Ruth liked it too and then took a picture in front of my favorite background, lush vegetation (or, in this case, grass). . . Anyone else need a private appointment so you can #getyourhennaon ? DM, call, email, whatever, I'll many it happen! . . #happyhennaguy #allnaturalhenna #artisticadornment #mohannahenna #hennaisneverblack #hennahand #hennaart #winchesterhenna

I've been really excited to share this image but was planning to wait until I had stain pictures to go side by side. Buuuut.... I'm impatient and today's a rainy day that needs some sunshine (sunshine, sunflower, that's pretty close right?). Flowers directly inspired by the amazing @jamilahhennacreations (check out her IG, she's great, and if you're ever in New England, find her and get some henna) and composition by me. 😃 . . Need some sunflowers in your life? Direct message me and let's make it happen! . . I'll be at #shepherdstownstreetfestival in Shepherdstown, WV this Saturday, 10a-9p. Want something big?

One of my regulars. she often gets flowers but this time wanted "something sightly more traditional, but not wedding-dense". So she got this, inspired by various @gopihenna designs and threw in a few flowers just because. I'm told the stain is super dark and she'll send pictures soon, I can't wait!! . .

A little Nordic inspired henna for my time as Thor tomorrow (stain is only 12 hours but I likely won't post tomorrow when it's mature).

I will not have a booth set up this weekend anywhere, but give me a shout out at the Mudder if you see us!

Three trees from this weekend. As a Virginia Tech forestry grad, I think these look like old oak trees grown in a field/yard. Everyone else calls them tree-of-life. Whatever you call them, they're fun to henna. . . #hennatree #henna #allnaturalhenna #winchesterhenna #downtownwinchesterva #hennaisneverblack #happyhennaguy #hennafoot #hennaforfamily

So I usually tell everyone "designs are hand drawn and may not be exact to the book". Well this lovely lady was so happy that her hand turned out like the book that she wanted her picture taken right beside @jamilahhennacreations original design. I thought that was fun. . . For anyone that wants their own "not exactly like the book, but close", come see me at the Front Royal Wine Fest tomorrow, 5/21, 10a-5p. . . #henna #allnaturalhenna #hennaisneverblack #happyhennaguy #winchesterhenna #artisticadornment #mohannahenna #hennaheart #downtownwinchesterva
