Henna!


The before shot:

Henna designs are drawn using a syringe filled with henna paste. Henna, which is a powder that comes from a root, is mixed with water, sometimes olive oil, maybe a lemon, some cloves, etc. You leave it on the skin to dry.

This is just one of the kinds of designs people-well, women, really- put on their hands and feet. I’m told henna has properties that are good for your skin and hair.
