Nice choice of the theme. happy weekend.

Mine is here: My hands is here

Leah said...

i've tried to have a henna in my hands too. its the kind of tatoo that could be washed of in just 2 weeks of so.

Hootin' Anni said...

I was here yesterday and saw your photo but didn't want to leave a comment 'til I posted my hunt photos today.

Terrific, as I said in yesterday's comment for 55.

I'll give you a hand [applause] for posting such a great photo grouping for the theme this week.

I have added four different hands for my entry. If you have time today, stop by and say 'howdy'!!! Happy Saturday to you.

ancient one said...

Perfect for the theme! These hands are busy painting.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Cool. But what is being painted there?

Have a great weekend!

Mira said...

This is certainly a nice photo. Here's mine http://www.mirasblog.com/2009/03/photo-hunt-12-hands.html

Judith Schultz said...

henna painting - I love the beautiful designs and delicate lines. Great photo. Judith

Gypsy at heart said...

Very interesting. What are all the papers? Is the design on the paper to the right of the artist the one being put on the hand? Do they do this freehand? I would like to see the finished result. Have never seen this in person.

Very nice photo you have. I have always admired the intricacies of the henna tattoo being done on Indian women. Very detailed and lovely.

zeal4adventure said...

Nice take on the theme. I've tried henna once before in Zanzibar but not on my hand but on my ankle. It was fun. :)

stan said...

That's quite a piece of art - henna painting.

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Very nice shot...

napaboaniya said...

A beautiful capture. Henna art is beautiful, except when it's done on a kids hand and getting them to hold still at least till it dries up :P
