I did so much scar work this last summer! Musta been a dozen women
who'd had major surgeries who wanted to "reclaim" that part and feel
pretty again. I 've got a henna model now comfortable with
photographing and I should be able to get some pics of her scars with
henna work.

In the first year or two, while the scar is still livid, the blood
flow doesn't seem to be totally restablished and the stains have some
peculiar characteristics. They'll stain ... but not very well. Or,
if they do stain well, the demise starts right at the scar and
migrates outward. I did 4 hennaes over breast reconstructions, and
saw the demise progress in this way. The women wanted henna right
over the aureolae incision, and the T incision vertically down. NO
problem .... ferns, flowers, leaves will cover anything!

Other surgeries were tougher to cover ... very large women had
abdominal surgeries that indented their bellies like putting big
rubberbands tightly around a feather pillow. I love working on big
women, and I did elegant, flowery, ferny flowing stuff all over the
new areas, all in the BIG HENNA technique. They felt happy to just
lie down under the henna tree and have someone pamper them for an hour
and make them all pretty, over all the stuff that had hurt so much.
If you go into the Secret Scribblings, I have notes there on hennaeing
over surgeries. Bo and her tummy tuck, and the breast reduction.
I'll try to get more of that put together with pictures.
