Beautifully Sexy Henna Belly for Curly Nikki

Beautifully Sexy Henna Belly for Curly Nikki

Curly Nikki, her hubby and little Gia are awaiting a new arrival ❤️ I had the honor of henna’ing Nikki’s belly not only once but twice (three times a charm?! hint, hint). Thank you so much Nikki for having me adorn that beautiful baby to be. Photography credits to myself, Khadija. Have you heard of Curly Nikki or seen her on her instagram page @curlynikki or seen her on TV such as on Dr. Oz’s show? She’s a pioneer in the natural hair community sharing her expertise and her own personal experiences. She was also on on Good Morning Washington this morning discussing winter hair care and styles. Did you happen to watch her on the show? Gia is so excited about their new arrival coming in just a few short months. So exciting having a little brother! She also did so amazing getting her henna done. She sat very still and took very good care of her design. We both agreed we wanted it to come out as “red” as possible and last a really long time. She is such a bundle of creativity and she says the cutest things....

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,...
