Are you talking about using a black "Sharpie" marker? I'm not sure
if I'd use that... it seems to me that might interfere with the
henna, though I've never tried it.

For just drawing on the skin, you might want to try a skin scribe
marker or a hectographic pencil. You can get hectographic pencils at
the Hennaworks (.com) and Skin Scribes (a.k.a. "surgical markers") at
a medical supply store, or check with your local tattoo parlor to see
where they order theirs from. You might get better results with

Best of luck & blessings to you!
