full body henna and spousal complications
Posted by Natasha Papousek on September 29, 2002 at 06:27:29:I got an email from a guy who wanted to know if I could do a full-
body henna on his girlfriend (and maybe a dragon on his back)... and
I thought it was feasible, but since the weather here never gets
really warm (esp. near the coast), I usually wrap my designs -- just
helps trap the body heat and also keeps people from smudging,
picking, etc. Can't really do the cotton/toilet tissue wrap with a
full body job... so I mentioned that I'd once tried liquid latex...
This guy thought liquid latex was a great idea -- and asked if I
could use blue since he thought that was esp. sexy... being rather
naive in some areas, I mentioned that I'd only used latex in a henna
context, and it was white, lumpy and not really attractive...
so he sent me the url to a latex site that has photos of people
wearing nothing but latex. My husband saw me looking at this website
and totally freaked....he usually doesn't care who I henna, but he
felt this guy had crossed a line by sending me a site with photos of
latex-clad people...and he gave me an ultimatum about doing henna for
this guy or his girlfriend.
So I cancelled the appointment.
The guy was very apologetic, and seemed genuinely surprised that my
husband would assume he had sinister intentions.
Sigh. I'd love to do a full-body henna, but I feel that in order to
maintain marital harmony, I shouldn;t push to do this job.
Sigh. And I missed out doing folks for Burning Man because we were
moving house the week before the event...
Oh well. Just did a very enjoyable party of graphic and landscape
designers. Delightful people and they all wanted cool designs. Very
satisfying. Only one Chinese character and not a single panda
