A Tattooed Baby Angel

The latest craze amongst the teen youth, is henna tattoos! The BA came back from her end of term drama party, sporting this!

Now I had heard of these being done on o/s visits to India and other exotic Asian ports, but I didn't realise you could buy the stuff for home use, in a purpose built tube, somewhat like writing icing.

I was impressed when she added to it herself, as she is not known for her fine motor dexterity, but Himself says it looks like gravel rash from a distance. I rather wondered what they'd say at work when she turned up to serve customers with this dermal graffiti; but apparently it is no biggie and after all, it's not permanent so what's the big deal mum????

No big deal I guess. As I said, at least it's not permanent. Have I mentioned before how I feel about tattoos?

We did these for both my kids bar mitzvah parties, except we went with airbrush tattoos instead of henna, because they're really fast (so the kids don't have to wait in line very long). They had them at The-Guy's company picnic too (the real henna) - the Sweetpea & I both got them done. In fact, I have a henna kit that I never have even opened yet. So I guess you HAVEN'T told me!!!!!! :-)

HipMomma: hahahah....oh well, each to their own!
Jill: I have no problem with these removable ones....it's the current (last 10 years) trend for body art on young people which bothers me. I mean, the things i thought were fashionable when I was in my early 20s I wouldn't be seen dead in now! Unfortunately, all these tattooed young people WILL be seen dead in their tattoos. *sigh*
