Opal Moon Henna: A Los Angeles Artist I Love

Cynthia:  One of the things I love about Los Angeles is that just about every week someone I know is performing or showcasing something of theirs that is really neat!

Last week we went to (the awesome and super talented) Time And The Dragon‘s EP release party that had a trunk show AND art show. Music. Art. Beauty. Jewelry. Photo Booth. Taco Stand. And… HENNA BODY ART! So OF COURSE I had to get a cat tat!

Marcy:  I can hardly see that. It’s too far away.

Cynthia:  Oops. Here’s a close-up.

Marcy:  That’s really cool! Especially for a dork like you, Cindy.

Cynthia:  The artist is Tamara J. Brown of Opal Moon Henna. You should see some of the amazing body art she can do. Her work is beautifully intricate.

Cynthia:  She also creates henna pendants, candle holders, stationery, and sun catchers.

Cynthia:  So colorful. So pretty. So unique.

Marcy:  Do you think she could do a henna design on cat fur? I want this one.

Cynthia:  That’s gorgeous! But, I think someone might report me to animal control if we put henna on you, Marcy.


Cynthia:  Sorry.

Marcy glares at Cynthia and swishes her tail.

Marcy (ominously):  So do you want another cat tat?

Cynthia:  Maybe. Why?

Marcy:  I can give you one too, you know. A permanent one.

Cynthia:  Yes, I know, Marcy. I’ve already got about 12 of yours. Please put your claws away. I’ll stick with Opal Moon Henna’s art. Not Marcy’s art.

Marcy:  Fine. Then you must buy me a henna art pendant.

Cynthia:  Fine. That I can do.

      Than you, Jenni! It's been a week and still hasn't faded much.
      I have to say, blogging has really got me to go out more. I am usually such a homebody but now that I am doing this, I actually look forward to going out to see what might be an interesting blog topic.

    Marcy should have a tattoo too. We must find a way to help our fuzzy companions who are longing for stylish embellishments.

      In the meantime, she would like a pendant. However, she is very indecisive and cannot make up her mind as to which color would suit her best.

    I know this blog post was really all about Opal Moon Henna (I LOVE her btw, she did my bridal party the night before my wedding and gave me amazing "sleeve" henna) but I just wanted to say thank you for sharing the link for our band! Great post, so glad you enjoyed the event!

      Jo – you are such an incredibly awesome musician/performer! Holy cow! You OWN that stage! My husband and I were just enthralled every time you got the mic!
