Henna Body Art by Oliver Twist

Putting a post-modern, er, twist on the ancient art of mehndi—the ceremonial application of henna—Oliver will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests. Most of the photos below show examples of his handiwork at high school Grad Nights. 

Oliver uses Mehndi Mud™, a blend of 100% pure henna plant, lemon juice, soap-grade eucalyptus oil and a natural sodium food preservative. The aromatic green paste is left to dry on the skin for 20 minutes to an hour. Cosmetic glitter can be added to enjoy while the design is drying. The design is then scraped off, leaving a light orange stain which later oxidizes into a deep, reddish-brown conversation piece, which can last 1 to 3 weeks. A great way to kick off the summer!
