Since the Australian summer of 2016, I've been making and creating henna tattoos.
It was actually an unexpected progress. I went to a market in Dunsborough,
Western Australia, to sell some of my bohemian jewellery necklaces, made with crystals or beautiful
stones I found in the area. This was my first selling-on-the-market ever.
I didn't sell a single piece.
So, the week after I went over to plan B: what if I try to create henna tattoos? I had a cone in my backpack I bought before in Perth and there I went. As I didn't have any experience and really not that good in drawing, I asked a donation for my tattoos instead of a fixed price. It turned out plan B was a good one. There was a huge line (only kids but still) and I practised a lot that evening.
And the tattooing continued...
From the start, I really loved the tattooing. It is such a nice way to meet new people while living a nomadic life and to be creative at the same time.
I start to make a little book with designs I found on Pinterest and people could easily pick something they fancied. I brought the book to every market and event I've been making henna tattoo's, ever since.
