: 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
: 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
: 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
: Rather, I work Inductively, meaning I dont make or have an
: 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
: 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
: 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?
