A few years ago, I had a vision of myself floating through space. It was as though my spirit were sitting inside an Orb that over looked the galaxy. As I sat in my bubble, I doodled. I drew all over the entire inside of my bubble, so that it was completely covered in patterns of my art.  My light would beam through the bubble, casting spirals of my art and patterns out into space. And all around me I felt the presence of Deities. Sitting in their own bubbles, they had come to watch the display.  As I beamed my light out to planet Earth, they watched the patterns spiral down and wrap around the planet, decorating earth with beautiful patterns and designs. 

"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life" - Elsie de Wolfe 

It's taken me some time to fully understand this vision. Now, as I begin to draw these Deities and ground them to Earth, I see how they wish to work with me.  I can see now that they follow me because they wish to touch others through this artistic tool. There are those on this earth they wish to help. Their wish is to connect with us, to help our human experience and offer their gifts. 
Using henna is such a beautiful way honor their spirit and bring them into our lives. Henna is a beautiful plant medicine. Not only has it been used for eons, dating back to a time long before Cleopatra, henna actually protects your skin like a glove, or a shield and since it is only temporary it allow us the fluidity of change. 

By using skin as the canvas for art we are actually allowing our bodies to tune into the energy of the art. In this same way, when I create a design with a Deity, I am in a way, imprinting the energy and blessings of these Deities onto the body I'm working with. In doing so you are accepting their presence and bringing their help into your life. 

Here is Lakshmi, the Goddess of Abundance, prosperity, wealth and Beauty. Seated on a Lotus flower, she holds two lotus flowers. One in each hand, this flower represents beauty, fertility and purity. 
Lakshmi is the embodiment of affluence, abundance and auspiciousness. She is the active energy force that brings abundance, prosperity, beauty and good luck to both the physical and spiritual realms. As the goddess of fortune, she bestows power, pleasure and prosperity on those who deserve her grace. To realize her, one must respect the laws of life and appreciate the wonders of existence.

Need a little Lakshmi in your life? Evoke this deity into your life with a henna tattoo session. Book an appointment and I'll tell you more about this lovely goddess while you lay back and let the art and magic unfold.

Cheers to you friends,

hope to be tattooing you next

I'm thinking of getting a permanent tattoo, but my friends told me to get a henna tattoo for now so I'll know if I want to be have a permanent tattoo eventually or not. Right now, I'm seeking for a henna tattoo artist. I find your creations beautiful and if I have time, I'll book an appointment with you. I want a cross tattoo. My dad has one, too.

There is no arguing that henna tattoos are beautiful. But what is henna exactly, and where did it come from? Henna is a small flowering shrub that has many uses. The fragrant flowers are used to create perfume, and the leaves are dried and then turned into a fine powder that’s used for dying clothes, hair and temporarily dying the skin. This is a beautiful design that you cam up with. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Lakshmi is the deity that you have on your body. She is an amazing goddess. She is the goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. Well, I really love your idea. It is going to be costly for sure because what if after having a henna tattoo you want it to be permanent then another tattoo is going to be made. Maybe this will work for people who are sort of rich who's willing to spend money for this kind of stuff. But for people who really wants that tattoo then maybe make it permanent, simply think about it properly and clearly.

It's your tattoo? Looks very impressive to me. I bet it was painful for you to do it.
