I have always fantasised about getting henna tattoo, but never been the type to go out of my way, just for beautification. So when the time for my traditional wedding came, I knew I would definitely be getting one. I thought of going to meet one of the women who draw it at Unilag, but since I wanted a whole package, which would include manicure and pedicure, I called Modest Muslimah instead.
We negotiated and fixed an appointment. A day to the appointment, I got a call from someone, with the greeting "wassalamualaikum" I immediately said "wrong number", lol, cos I could not think of anyone that knew me, and would call me, greeting me like a muslim. The caller then went on to explain that she's from modest muslimah lounge, and wanted to confirm I would still be coming the next day. I was impressed at this.
The next day, I went to the place. I was offered drinks and water, but I wasn't hungry or thirsty. The customer service was really good, although we had some back and forth about pricing... as per alaroro bride like me.
The manicure and pedicure was quite average, but since it wasn't my real motive for going there...
As for the henna tattoo, I chose the design I liked. There were so many to choose from, that I was spoilt for choice. The henna artist replicated the design to the best of her ability. I think she got the leg design better.
At the end of the day, this is what we had
The drawing of the tattoo
|The total henna look|
|It was definitely more exposed on the Igbo outfit|
So for customer service and artist creativity, I give it to Modest Muslimah. But for the fact that the tattoo cleaned off pretty fast, Noooo.
What of you? Have you gotten a henna tatto before, would you like to get? If yes, would it be just casually or for a major event like a wedding or birthday?
