A Tradition
By: Krysteen Lomonaco ~ 10/15/2020

Henna is such a beautiful and timeless tradition. One would think there would be all kinds of poetry written about this substantial artwork. It’s usually present in life’s significant moments. You’ll see it in most family gatherings, for a new birth, graduation, and wedding celebrations. I love seeing people celebrated in more common ways as birthdays and festivals. I have clients who come back year after year because it’s a tradition for them to go to a special event, such as a festival, with their friends and family and to receive Henna.

My daughter is in her senior year at University and taking a poem class. I asked her to write a henna poem for me and this is what she came up with. I think it’s poignant and touches on those feelings most of us have when receiving this awesome gift.


A Tradition

I find comfort in the earthy
cold, smooth paste,
that form swirls with endless
additives for all occasions.

Surprise, eyes wide
when the first design
rest upon my hand.
But only for a moment,
before Swoosh it’s a smudge.

Eyes glitter and shimmer
with a light of euphoria,
for the special day. Flowers
swirl from my hands to my arms,
as I look for our initials.

Eyes flooded, translucent
looking at the intricate lines
decorating my swollen
belly that harbors the legacy
to this long tradition.

A guest invited to all memorable,
intimate, moments with
a design for each distinct stamp
in time.

Henna Life on Etsy
By: Krysteen ~ 9/15/2020

Mehndi Madness loves to decorate the henna booth and the home with henna inspired decorations and household items. At every henna location we utilize tapestries and tablecloths displaying designs like mandalas, elephants, and flowers to show some of the elements that are incorporated in the henna art style.

Etsy is a wonderful and semi-cheap way to find henna inspired items for your home. Common elements like mandalas, flowers and vines are easy decorations to find when looking for more henna like items to hang on the wall. A personal favorite from Mehndi Madness owner, Krysteen Lomonaco likes henna decorations that are macramé, especially mandalas and lotus’ to hang or use on the floor to get that henna inspired look.

Ohm symbols, and moons are also a big hit on Etsy. It is common to find metal ohm symbols to decorate the walls as well as moons being combined with mandalas to make dreamcatchers, tapestries, and posters.
