Hi Kelly,
My name is Anne and I've done henna professionally, lessee, something
like four years now, in both Seattle (with Gilded lilies) and New York
City. Kenzi and I work closely together here in Brooklyn, NY.
Personally I prefer pastry tips as my "weapon of choice" - they are a
bit fragile and rather hard to make, but last a while if you take care
of them and are far, far easier than cones/carrot bags, and easier on
the hand than jacquard bottles (the small plastic bottles), which many
people use.
If you have't read Catherine's rant on going professional, check it
out. Very thorough take on the whole "business" of henna. My two
cents are that *no one* can make a living at it at least in the US, so
it's best to make sure you're really good and then just relax and
accept paying jobs when they come. Advertising doesn't hurt either!

Anyway, welcome, glad you have discovered this art we all love. For
more patterns check out the Dover Clip Art books (thanks, Kree!) as
well as any textiles, wallpaper, wrapping paper, art from around the
world...you've probably already noticed there are henna patterns
