Would you tattoo?

9-23-10 inked brain

Back in the day when I had cable TV and would find myself channel surfing, I would land on Miami Ink, a TV show about tattoo artists. I began to appreciate the artistic side of tattoos, and the creativity and talent behind them…. but I still did not think I could choose something to have on my body permanently. Yet I was intrigued by the thought of it.

Well, I found a fun alternative, thanks to my teen-age neighbor Paige. She discovered the joys of Henna temporary tattoos.

Paige created a Henna tattoo for me to go with my costume for the Beaverdale parade which was this weekend. She did this all by hand. I was very happy with her work.

This is to last about 7 to 10 days…. When it’s gone, I wonder if I will miss it? or maybe I will be ready for a new and different one?


  1. Hi Judy-
    I got henna done in Dubai when I visited there several years ago. It was in the middle of the desert...if felt very authentic. I think it would be fun to get again! I can picture my mom getting henna, too. :)

    I wanted to thank you so very much for the journal. I think of you when I open it up everyday. How very, very thoughtful. My mom is blessed to have a friend like you.

    Thanks again...Amber

  2. I love your henna tattoo... my secret wish has always been for Dave and I to get a tiny heart tattoo on our ring fingers that only we would know is there - unless, of course, we showed it to someone! So far, he won't do it - I think he's afraid of the pain :)

  3. I guess we need to have a "henna party" for the girls!

    Sending special hugs to you Amber!

  4. Yes, a Henna Party! Let's do it. I'm in.

  5. The henna kit which was used on me came from Michaels store.
