Sharpie

Yes, sharpie, not mehndi. About 3 yeas ago I bought a mehndi kit, but have not yet used it. Last night I don't know what came over me. I very impulsively starting drawing on myself with my new fine tipped sharpie. If I used the traditional mehndi materials it would have felt sacred. Somehow writing on myself with pen felt improper, almost deviant.

I love sharpies.

I wonder why the difference in materials creates such different feelings. I like it either way.

Is Clapton a better musician because he plays on a blond Telecaster? Sharpie or Mehndi, it's still beautiful because it came from the hand of an artist.

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! I'm the PR manager for Sharpie and unfortunately Sharpies aren't tested for use on skin, so we don't encourage people to use them that way. Truth is lots of people DO use them that way (despite our wagging finger) and this is an amazing example of the outcome.
