    Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Stagecoach—How to Choose?

    Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Stagecoach—How to Choose?

    OK, so most of us have limited budgets, and we love festivals, so how do you decide which one(s) to attend, which ones to cross off your list, which one you’ll do next year, instead? Aaaargh! Sorry, but I don’t have any answers. I suggest eenie meenie myney mo, and enjoy yourself anytime and anywhere you are lucky enough to land.

    And what if, for whatever reason, you can’t make it to any of them? Gasp! Well, here I do have a solution: create festival season wherever you are! First things first, get your body art on. Of course, you expect that from me, but still, it’s true. Seems to me that people who love music festivals also love body adornment, just like us guys on the Earth Henna team. So to put yourself in the mood, I say choose among oh, so many options!—henna tattoos, jagua tattoos, white henna tattoos, silver henna tattoos, gold henna tattoos, and a whole assortment of flash and stick-on temporary tattoos from our Beauty collection, which offers shiny, shimmery and glamorous body art options for glowing, and even scented tattooed skin!

    I guarantee that, once you’re all decked out with gorgeous body art—watercolor butterflies on your shoulder; floral vines going up your arms and legs; shimmery gold flash tattoos around your eyes and on your finger tips; beautiful, symbolic henna tattoos on your hands; or beautiful, tribal jagua tattoos on the back of your neck, you’ll start to hear the music follow you around wherever you go!

    Get in the groove. From now until April 21, all temporary tattoo kits and Beauty products are 15% off, with FREE SHIPPING if you spend $30. It’s our pleasure to serve your body adornment needs!

    What We Care About: You Looking Gorgeous, And Other things

    What We Care About: You Looking Gorgeous, And Other things

    If Body Adornment was a person, her goal in life would be:

    • Make human beings gorgeous
    • Help people express themselves
    • Give people options

    At Earth Henna, in creating henna tattoo kits, jagua tattoo kits and white henna tattoo kits (White Lace/Silver Lace and White Lace/Gold Lace kits), as well as lots of other adornment choices, we already partner with Body Adornment to make you gorgeous, give you options and facilitate your self expression.

    We care about helping you look and feel gorgeous inside and out, and seeing the smiles on your faces after you’ve adorned yourself for festival season, parties and special events. In addition, we also care deeply about doing what it takes to foster a caring environment for our employees, and assisting our suppliers, who, like most people on the planet, can use a helping hand.

    This year, we are funding the digging of a well for the family of Moroccan henna farmers we’ve worked with for years. Their desert region has suffered a crippling drought for a decade now, and without this well, they have no way to continue earning a living.

    Every year, we pay for malaria medication for the 200 members of the Matsés people, who live deep in the Peruvian Amazon in a village where our jagua fruit is harvested, peeled, grated, and pressed to expel the juice that’s shipped to us here in the States.

    Additionally, though you may not know this about us, my parter and husband Pascal Giacomini and I, for 25 years, have also owned a Haitian art gallery that operates out of our home in Hollywood. I am from Haiti. It is devastatingly poor there, but Haiti is also one of the biggest sources for black art in the world! We have helped to introduce and promote the works of Haitian artists—the desperately poor and those who are better off—for a long time. In fact, on Saturday, March 25th, Cal State Northridge is hosting an exhibition of Pascal’s Haiti-inspired photography, sculpture and documentary film, Out of Chaos, An Artist's Journey in Haiti*, about the thriving art scene in one slum in the capital city of Port-au-Prince. If you live in Los Angeles, you’re invited. We’d love to meet you, our gorgeous patrons!

    Henna Tattoos and Floral Crowns

    Floral crown

    Right now I’m thinking that nothing goes better with a henna tattoo than a floral crown! You know how they’re just so playful and delightful and make whoever’s wearing one look like a goddess or someone young and carefree, even if she’s walking around on crutches?

    Permanent tattoos have their own vibe; jagua tattoos project their own energy too. But if we’re talking about henna tattoos then I’m having Bohemian visions; I’m hanging out with hippies, free spirits, free thinkers. The color of henna specifically conveys not a permanent tattoo, but definitely a love of body adornment. If you love henna tattoos you probably enjoy shopping at Free People or Urban Outfitters the idea of attending Burning Man or Coachella speaks to you.

    I’m also seeing bell-bottomed jeans, frayed at the hem; big, bulky cloth bags or totes imprinted with stripes or flowers. Ah, yes, flowers! That’s right, I was talking about floral crowns, the newest must-have look for flower children of all ages. I first learned about the look from our friend Leticia Martinez, whose “Flower Crowns” are the rage every year at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s Day of the Dead event. Her designs are also showing up in a pretty consistent way on fashion runways and events. If you want to see Leticia’s magnificent designs—from simple and elegant to bold and dramatic—cruise on over to leticiamstudio.com. Or you could check out the beautiful Leticia Martinez Crowns we’re showing at our Adornment Collection.

    In any case, when I first saw them, I was so inspired that I asked if we could use them for a photo shoot. After all, summer was approaching, and I also thought they would be perfect for fall, when the weather starts turning but you’re still savoring summer. And, as far as accessories go, flower crowns and henna tattoos couldn’t be more perfect together. Here’s a glimpse of some of the gorgeous photos from that shoot. Back to School doesn’t have to mean the End of Summer! Come on, you know you want to run right out and get yourself adorned, am I right?
