H there,
I've worked two years as a henna artist and, I tell you, it's taken
over most of my life...openning new doors and opportunities all the
time. I agree that while every venue is not the money making one,
that's what exploration is about...getting your artwork out there,
educating the masses (next summer I'll definitely have a three fold
flyer including PPD warnings...less to chat...more tangible)

I've been a tattoo artist for nearly 12 years. I resisted henna until
it thrust itself upon me at a wedding. I liked it as a medium and
quickly explored information before I applied it to anyone again
(there were MANY at that wedding who I left my mark on). This summer
I got so busy with henna that I had to turn away all other work
opportunities until Octoberish!

So, now that 9/11 closed my shop...henna has entered my heart. Sure
it's a drag driving all over the place...and I've learned VALUABLE
lessons about taking time to SLEEP...but Spirit gave me this
opportunity to expand and so that's what I'm doing.

I only do custom work (with the rare exception of a name)...but I
dont work deductably. (All that pressure of expectations unnerves me)
Rather, I work Inductively, meaning I dont make or have an intention
or a plan...I just open the client up, making them comfortable and
their design emits itself. I find quite frequently I can also read
the design, like tarot cards in a way, when I'm done. Sure, it's more
draining, but I cant turn away the responsibility of my gift. No, I
dont read everyfools...just the ones who I feel compelled to tell.
Interestingly, with my daughter, who is quite NON spiritual right
now...and my apprentice...I can still often see those very same sorts
of readable symbols in her work upon completion.

I've met other artists who do custom work, to be sure, but have yet
to meet anyone who works so much by the seat of their pants and
furthermore, who reads them.

Has anyone else experienced henna in this Spiritual way?
