      It stains your skin for about a week but you have to keep the henna paste on for atleast 4 - 5 hours so that the colour would turn a nice shade of red :)

      I used to work in a tattoo shop, as an office boy, making transfers and talking to clients, handling money etc. Every so often someone would come in with Menhndi and want it to be tattooed on ...my employer would research the symbol and then refuse, because It was not just a shape or a 'pretty picture' but had significance beyond what the client was aware of. So I've always been appreciative of that fact, I am very much a fan or ancient arts that are surviving today. Who taught you this practice?

      ohh how cool, well the designs done usually (in our religion: Islam) does not have a significant meaning, though some Hindus use symbolism in there's, they use peacocks and I think include their God(s) in their designs. Sometimes people get confused with Hinduism and Islam, we both share a cultural practice which is the henna.

      No one taught me :) I used to do this before way back when they used toothpicks, I have no idea why they never thought of cones lol! I used to practice but wasn't that great only till last year I started trying to make it better, I also used to watch the ladies from India do it (they are really good at it and very fast). It helped a lot last year when I created my company Junoon Designs, all my influences was based on the henna and floral patterns from the East so henna became easier since I created my own style :) It's harder to copy than draw your own stuff.

      :) I think everyone should learn new things, we have so much access to technology, it would be a shame not to take advantage of it! I love learning so maybe that's a plus for me
