Last summer I got a henna tattoo at a festival in my neighbourhood. It was a long time ago since I had my last one so I thought ‘time for a new one!’ I like henna tattoos a lot but I get tired of them very fast. So it’s great they don’t last very long. The woman who did it said it would last 2 weeks but I think it stayed on my hand for a month. I always like it more when the henna is still on my hand, it’s black and looks like it has more details.
What do you guys think about henna tattoos?
My new tattoo is placed on my right foot and means a lot to me. The placement did hurt a lot more then my previous tattoo which is placed on the back of my neck. My foot tattoo only took like 10/15 minutes and the one on my neck 1.5hours. I couldn’t have stand this pain for 1.5hours I think. It’s still not completely healed and I probably have to go back because it’s fading. This because the skin on your feet is really hard to heal.
‘Art never comes from happiness’ is a quote of Chuck Palahniuk. My interpretation is that everything in the past has made me who I am and I think you can’t know the world without knowing hurt. I also make more ‘art’ when I’m sad because I have a lot more inspiration then. The past made me who I am now and I don’t mind all the hurt, because I don’t think a would be a better person when my life is all rainbows and butterflies.
Remember, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!
