: Hej,
: Have been practicing on friends a lot lately - am getting much
: better, but nowhere near the level of beauty created by other forum
: members. Part of that is the repetitive motion disorder, which has
: decided to make a comeback because of all the hennaing on friends
: lately.
: Two nights ago, I tried a few things out on a friend's back - some
: good, some not so good - but it was the first time for eithe
: and I needed the practice, and if she's going to have much henna
: on her, it will be on her back 'cause she's not comfortable with it
: on her hands or feet or anyplace else where it can be seen at work.
: For the most part, she was lying down, and everytime she breathed,
: would throw off my design - just the action of breathing. Does
: make sense? Towards the end, she sat up and we tried it that way,
: which was easier for her but I didn't care for it. How do other
: people approach backs??
: Also, have been approached about hennaing at a graduation party
: month in central CT (outside of Harford); if people want pretty
: little flowers and such, I can do it, but between the pain in my
: hands and the chance that someone will want something other than a
: pretty little flowers, I'd rather have someone else with me. This
: just a tentative thing at the moment, but if there's anyone in the
: area who'd be interested, please email me privately.
: Thanks much,

Hi Anne,
I usually do backs with them standing and me sitting cause it always
seems when they get up from sitting or laying position, the natural
sway in the lower back smushes the design. If it's super elaborate
they lay down, but don't get up until dry. The breathing thing gets
me for belly buttons too! It's amazing how much some people move when
they breathe and others don't. It's definitely easier to do them
laying down, but such a bummer to watch them screw it up when they
try to get up!! Hope this helps:)
