from her eyes by bailey--elizabeth from her eyes by bailey--elizabeth
took this today. the beautiful henna is an original design by the henna honey of philadelphia. she was a lovely woman from whom i learned a lot.

and before anyone says anything about cultural appropriation, the reason behind me getting this henna was to support an individual who wishes to make money doing what she loves, which is making her own henna designs and drawing them on people.
i am aware of the origins of henna and the associations that it has, and i respect those origins. i am not trying to offend anybody. i think that, like many parts of many cultures, henna is something to be appreciated by all and has grown to have more purposes than just the traditional ones. you can read about the traditional use of henna as body art here: [link]

Firstly, this is amazing and she is SO BEAUTIFUL.
In my opinion, everything about this picture is flawless. <3 Well done.
So saying that, this has given me inspiration for an assignment I had... So it's not as cool c: But still.
I attempted to draw her... And I hope you don't mind xD My apologies for not asking your permission before I started.
Here is the link though if you would like to take a peek. c:

Thank you for the link, and that is a very beautiful photo! I draw a little henna myself, but have only done it on myself so far. It's a lot of fun, and very beautiful :) If you like, you can check out my first henna: [link]
(I dunno if it's rude to post ones own art on someone elses submission, if it is taken that way, I'm very sorry, and you can feel free to delete my post :) )

The way you did the eyes reminds me of the time I startled my beau... XD My eyes have the habit of changing constantly, often into a soft blue with a ring of gold around the pupil. When the sun hits them right, my eyes look like a cat's... Thus, le confused boyfriend... XD

If it didn't sound utterly creepy - I'd ask if you knew of the prophecies lied beneath your eyes...
