Never ever had I thought that my love for henna would inspire my own kids! I couldn’t imagine my boys would like the flowery designs I am so fond of. And they don’t.
They always ask for something manly.
Manly henna… Hmm…
I had no idea there really was a market for henna for men. And then I find all these beautiful and very inspirational images.
So, when my 8-year-old to-be asked for Solar System henna for his birthday, I jumped right in.
Oh my, was this boy happy!
His little brother would ask for little things, like a dandelion or a little pickup truck. Once he requested a “pretty swirly design, just like the one on your hand, mama!” I did my best for the four-year-old who can stay still for exactly 45 seconds.
This compass henna was done when the big boy said, I need a compass so I will always find my way home.
Melted my heart! SO I dropped everything and gave him a henna compass.
It always makes me smile how his peers think he’s so cool with his henna tats!
When I learned that a very good friend of mine wanted her teenage son to have one, my mind exploded! I started brainstorming the designs I could offer to be placed on his biceps.
Designing and sketching are probably my favorite things to do. All the possibilities and options!!!
This Tribal Sun makes a great statement without being fussy. I found it on Google somewhere, no artist name attached. If you know whose work this is I would love to give a credit where credit’s due.
This design was also found on Google.
I did a bit of adjusting, but this one was his choice.
Don’t you think it looks great in henna???
When this image was shared on Social Media I got another request.
And this is what happened! I’m looking forward to creating many more!
