A natural henna paste is applied to the mother's skin, allowed to dry and remain for hours, then removed to reveal the stain created by the natural dye. The session location is chosen by the client, typically at home with a couple of friends or at a special event such as a Mother Blessing. Plan on a session lasting up to 3 hours for a detailed full belly design such as the ones shown on this site and usually longer if there are guests present.
