Henna Belly Blessings for Your Pregnancy

Henna Belly Blessings for Your Pregnancy

How can I even begin to describe the feeling and beauty of applying a henna belly design? I don’t even know if I could find the right words. It just makes me so happy and I love moments like these. Inspired by Melanie Ooi What is a Henna Belly (Blessing)? Henna is a plant-based natural and organic dye that safely leaves a temporary tattoo on the skin for 10-14 days. Henna is used traditionally for blessing ways, weddings, baby showers and religious celebrations. Locally most of my henna belly appointments are done with the client privately, in photoshoots or at their baby shower (this way guests get henna too!). Inspired by Bella Henna A Henna Belly design can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes to complete. Most babies in mom’s tummy will bounce around and give a kick here and there as I apply the henna. It’s so fun to watch them dance while I paint. I wrap every belly with saniderm to ensure darkest and longest stain results of the henna body art tattoo. I enjoy taking inspiration from other artists and then putting my own special touches of the final design. The Henna Belly will stain a beautiful reddish tone. Seeing how beautiful the design comes out is just amazing. Henna will be a light orange tone at first and then suddenly over the next few hours (24-48 hours) the design gets darker and deepens. Inspired by Akiyo Henna Every Henna Belly design created always reflects the energy I feel from the person. I’m not sure how to describe that but every individual that I do henna for,...

Bar & Bat Mitvah Henna Parties!

Bar & Bat Mitvah Henna Parties!

Over the last few months I have been fully booked every weekend with henna parties for the holidays, birthdays and especially bar/bat mitvahs. They have all been amazing and so much fun! From the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore to Dave & Buster’s and intimate restaurant settings they have all been really fun. Everyone is so creative in choosing out their designs. Freestyle henna art is one of my personal favorite requests. It allows for me to create something unique and beautiful. Did you know that in freestyle henna you always get a little bit more then the standard designs? Freestyle henna. May the force be with you & cute climbing lizard. More freestyle creations requested by the moms at the party. Someone definitely likes tattoos. When the design is like a piece of jewelry. Love it! I’m really fortunate to have such an awesome job #ilovemyjob. At the Henna Sooq, I get to create my own schedule, and have that flexibility to me a mom, and wife. Mind you, it’s a lot of work and there are many aspects I don’t enjoy like book keeping and inventory. They completely stress me out. My new focus on my henna art combined with social media makes this bliss. It’s super relaxing and fun. I’m not rushing anymore but really enjoying every bit of paste laid down. Plus the photos I can get to share on our IG are priceless. Book with us soon! Call us through our booking line at 443-254-0736. Would love to be apart of your event and even work on a...

Why I don’t do henna at certain events

Why I don’t do henna at certain events

I absolutely love doing henna body art tattoos. I think it’s such an exciting job, super fun, and everyone I meet is amazing. It’s definitely a job worth being jealous of. Don’t worry, I still love you! BUT there is always a but. There are some events I just don’t do. I’m about that positive energy, happy people, natural organic lifestyle, and people who respect me for who I am. When I know my energy is going be rocked downwards I tend to stay away. I believe it also took me at least 3-4 years to be a descent henna artist, and another 3-4 years to become a wonderful henna artist. Meaning that I always enjoyed doing henna but in my early years I was kind of impatient. Now as I’ve grown I’ve learned more about myself and what about henna that makes me happy. My happiness radiates to others, and this makes me even more happy. I take more pictures, share on social media, and make sure my henna is perfect. Do You Have Black Henna? No. We absolutely do not apply or use black henna nor chemically based henna. We also won’t use the henna you have either. This is one of my major turnoffs. The straw that breaks this camels back is when the event organizers allow this, and it doesn’t seem to bother them. I’m sure to always ask ahead of time if there will be black henna at the venue. The attendees think that one henna is red and the other is black. Red henna is actually real, natural henna in it’s true form....
