These aren't really henna monsters. This is skin, hennaed, and not
hennaed at 60x. I had henna lines along the edges of my feet, and
slivered off a bit of the skin. (Don't panic, the slips were 1mm, and
just the surface). You can see where the henna lines are, they're
actually pretty distinct!. The skin is crumpled, like wet tissue
paper, because I didn't liquid nitro-freeze my foot before I took the
samples, and I don't have a proper scalpel ... but that's what a few
hennaed cells next to a few non-hennaed cells look like. The actual
pieces of skin are about 1 mm long, less than half of that wide.
