Henna & Jagua Tattoos – Body Art by Alicia of MehndiSol
October 5 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm$20
Saturday, October 5, 11am-3pm
Henna is an ancient mostly feminine tradition and heralds from India, Africa and the Middle East. In the desert, mehndi began as a way to keep the body cool. One of the properties of the henna plant is the cooling effect as long as there is color.
Many ceremonies have developed around the painting of henna on the skin. Special occasions are accented with the tradition of mehndi - weddings, birthdays, baby showers and more. Henna body art is more than painting a pretty design on your skin; it serves as a time to relax, slow down and feel beautiful. It can also be a time for women to gather together to support each other in a sacred way.
Jagua is an all natural extract from the Genipa Americana fruit growing in the Amazon, and stains a beautiful blue/indigo/black color almost immediately. Alicia can also add jagua to a henna design for an extraordinary two-tone look.
