I can say nothing more than what everyone else has already said. This is beautiful beyond all words. You have transformed a harrowing experience that could be the face of death into an expression of life.
That is truly beautyfull! Losing there hair isasuch a big thing for most cancerpatients! And for them to fing anather way to feal beutyfull is so importaint! yes, there are wig's, hat's, scarfs, but thay should not seel the need to cover up, but hold there head high as thay walk to Battle!
The idea is amazing, and the pattern is beautyfull!
Why henna and not real ink..? 0_o? I mean, when her hair grows up again it will be cover by it, and wile the hair doesn't grows to chemo, she can fully enjoy the looks of the tattoo... is just such a pretty work that it pains me to see it disappear as it happens with henna... :/
i do agree with what you are saying but henna is just like pen ink or even sharpie (just not bad for your body). you know how when you draw on your body with sharpie it fades away in a couple days? henna works the same way only it usually lasts longer. the pattern on this woman will eventually fade away but till then she has a beautiful work to show off to the world.
Well there is the whole fact that tattoos are painful, and also create wounds which is a very very bad thing for a person with a compromised immune system. There are many reasons to get a temporary marking instead of permanent, even if it's going to be completely covered up.
