This gorgeous woman came to me with an idea of a lotus on the back of her neck as the starting point for her henna tattoo - she's considering a permanent tattoo in this area. I began with the lotus flower unfolding, dripping down her back and stopped to photograph the progress before we went onto her shoulders. It took about 2 hours, and she sat in my studio and drank tea and we laughed as we exchanged stories.
Above, in purple, is the finished henna tattoo, with the fresh henna dried a dark brown. Henna takes about 2 or 3 days to fully develop, and so she returned to my studio a few days later for more photos. The weather was so lovely we just went outside to a local green space.
It's spring in Colorado and I love all the little flowers popping out! The green leaves are so fresh and new. There was a short sprinkle of rain and a slight breeze - which just added to the experience.
