Get Ready for Henna Tattoos

Posted on June 19th, 2012 by Akunna in Programs, Resources, Teen Services

Summer begins this week! To start us off, local artist Nimmi will be doing henna tattoos at a number of branches this month. If you’ve never seen what these beautiful, temporary tattoos look like, take a look below:

Go to our Events for Teens  tab on the BPL Summer Reading page to find out where and when Nimmi will be doing henna tattoos.

The art of making henna tattoos, called mendhi, goes way back, at least 5,000 years. If you want to know more about it AND learn how to make your own designs, here’s a good place to start

If you need some ideas for what you’d like drawn on you, the Henna Page Symbol Index  has some suggestions.
