Henna Tattoing Day 

**Tuesday, April 15th, 11:00am-5:00pm in Front Lobby

You've seen Madonna do it; you loved when Gwen Stefani did it - NOW YOU CAN DO IT TOO!!!!  Henna Tattoing has made its way from Hollywood to the hallowed halls of Kent!

No - needles are not involved!  To decorate the body, people from South Asian countries use Henna, (or "Mendhi" as we like to call it), a green paste that comes from crushing up plant leaves.  It is primarily used to celebrate happy occasions such as religious holidays and weddings.  The paste is then used to make designs and patterns on the skin.  After application, the longer you leave the Henna on, the darker the pattern gets and the longer it will stay.  You then wash or brush it off, and, voila, a beautiful design!  The tattoos are temporary, of course, and can stay anywhere from 1-3 weeks.

Have something to show off when you wear your new tank top!  The process will take about half an hour to get done, to let it dry, and to wash/brush it off, so allot yourself enough time to come spend with us.

Refreshments will be served - yet another South Asian delight - Mango Lassi - a delicious yogurt based drink made with real mangos.

Don't miss out on the fun, or the body art.  Get your temporary tattoo on April 15th!!

Donations will be accepted.
