All in the name of serious journalism, my friend Ryneisha Bollard who’s been helping me cover WOMADelaide for the festival’s blog got a henna tattoo done.
I was seriously impressed by the henna artist, who I clocked and took 1min and 43 seconds to draw up an amazing design…
I touched the design gently while it was still drying, and it felt like soft clay. Neish removed the solid top because it annoyed her after a while, and she now has an orange imprint on her hand for about a week until it washes off!
Incidentally, we are clearly just big kids at heart – the henna body art demonstrations are part of Carclew Youth Arts’ many fabulous arts and crafts workshops.
Check out how cool one little girl’s artwork I saw was:
