About this photo: I have found that Henna can be a beautiful thing in the darkness of depression. It is used to dye skin, or nails, or hair in unique and beautiful ways. There is something sacred about the process of having it painted upon your skin by the hands of a skilled artist. It is slow and precise, and becomes more beautiful as the artist continues. It feels like it is becoming a part of you, a new you. Several hours after the painting is complete, the outside hardens and falls, leaving the beautiful design as one with your skin and body.
