Henna drawings. She was outside to dry her open hands, when dry, she was going back in to do the other side.

    Oh my word… absolutely flawless. I’ve always been intrigued by these henna ‘tattoos’ – do they paint them on with a fine brush, or use some sort of pen with a nib, and the ink made of henna?


  3. Saw a young girl today in Nouakchott central market with blue plastic bags over her hands. Intrigued I stopped and asked her why, she took them off to show me her still wet henna tattoos. Not as beautiful as the ones in your photo, but still a great work of art.

      Hi Chris. I had never seen nor heard of henna tattoos before. I think i’ll have my 19 year old try those on before she dares go under the needle. Gasp…Thank you for your comment! ~amy
