Mehndi meets Goth

About 6 years ago, I decided I want to learn to do henna tattoos (mehndi). I read some books, studied traditional designs and practiced on my hands, wrists and feet until I got the hang of it. In a short while I was doing art walks, events and by appointments at a nearby spa. When I moved to Ireland for a few months and needed cash I hung out on the street with the buskers and offered mehndi designs to passersby. It's been a while since I did any but it's been on mind lately. It seemed natural to merge my love for henna with my avant-goth approach to fashion. I wanted an outfit that expressed me and the spirit behind Nocturnal Threads. Of course, it had to have some stripes and hand drawn mehndi style patters plus a splash of red in the signature black and white. The result is Nocturne. Enjoy. :)

In other news, I finally sorted out a way to attend this years SLCC. Thanks to two wonderful friends who helped make it possible. (you know who you are and how hard you rock ;) Anyway, YAY! I'm really looking forward to it. Hope to see some of you there.

Ciao for now. :)
