In Love with Mehandi

This is in response to my new profile pic. It does seem like I am posing for no apparent reason and doing some heavy Bollywood stuff.....but no, its not as bad as it looks.

Yes I am doing some heavy Bollywood kinda stuff but I am not posing for the hell of it....in fact I was posing for Love!!...

Let me explain.

I love Mehandi, Love it! I take every chance I get to look up people's work, put some Mehandi on myself (inspired by others and some original design), my mom (someone has to cooperate) in short I Love it!

Now a chance came somewhere in March of this year, I modeled for a awesome Mehandi artist, all I had to do is observe her work while she drew Bridal Designs on me, and then model for her, so she can use those pictures in her portfolio. I was more than happy to do so...For those interested you can check out the pictures Here

I am still in the stages where I am getting better, but I thought I'd put up some pics and get some feedback. In fact I am putting a pic first of a wooden Box that I put Mehandi on :)...then a couple of pics of Mehandi'd Hands.....Take a peek!

The Box





My Mehandi Works :)

I have always been doing the Mehandi for everyone except the bride whenever there is a wedding in my family. I am hoping to that one day I get good enough that I can do some good Bridal Mehandi. :)

Yes, the new profile pic is very attractive. The eyes shining very bright and the quintessential Indian make-up. Can anything look better than Mehendi and a big bindi? Very nice mehendi designs, that's a fundu hobby you have.

Angel's Flight said...
