The further evolution of black henna (i guess they're just cutting corners now)

While venturing out to explore more of toronto this weekend, i came
about something that made me really mad...Little Miss Henna (that's
the company) is not using J-bottles to sling PPD anymore, they're
using a paintbrush, and ppd that doesn't even closely resemble a
paste. Even though it doesn't even have the tiniest resemblance to
henna, it's still being advertised as henna. They used a paintbrush,
that was HUUUUUUGE to apply this crap. They are totally cheepening
and adding a super negative connotation to real henna by displaying
they're half ass artwork (probably even less than half)which'll
probably scar someone and passing it off as something with such a
rich culture and safety tag along with it. Worst of all people are
actually buying it. I made a big scene and drove away alot of the
crowd (yay!) by preeching the speach, and i think it helped that i
said that it's "imitation henna", as this was the crowd that won't
stand for anything imitation (perfume, clothes, glasses, toilet
paper...if it ain't gucci, it ain't for me).

But what effect do you think this'll have on us REAL henna slingers?
Will the crappy artwork send the crowds begging for quality designs,
or will the crappy artwork drive people away from henna period?
