Henna & Photos

SarahKate Butterworth ~ Boulder's Premier Henna Artist and Photographer My henna is made of natural, safe ingredients and lasts a week or two. I serve Colorado's front rage ~ Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, Denver & metro Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Loveland, Nederland and Aspen. The tradition of pregnancy henna comes to us from the Berber culture (north Africa) who have been using henna for over 8,000 years. Having henna applied during a healthy pregnancy is generally safe but it is always a good idea to speak with your doctor. Henna should be avoided if you are extremely anemic or if you (or your unborn baby) has a G6PD deficiency.

       On a sunny, warm October day I drove out of Boulder and up through the mountains into the gorgeous world of Sugarloaf. Ashley sat back in the sun and requested flowers on water, and this design spontaneously poured out while her guests arrived. I love the ocean waves incorporated in this design, the warm watery beauty of pregnancy, of the womb... I love how it came out ~ 

      After adorning the mama-to-be I painted several of her guests with flowers, owls, a tree, a dragon, a wolf and this lightening bolt & stars ~

       The theme for this full chest breast feeding body art was focused around a nest with mama bird and two baby birds, with daddy bird flying in. I love these playful looking birds! 

    This body art is done with the intention to bless the bond between this mother and her children ~ I am grateful to have witnessed this loving nursing bond.
