When we visited Chellah a necropolis and complex of ancient and medieval ruins near Rabat in Morocco there were two Ladies turning around the female tourists.

first an overlook who could be a "victim" ?

maybe a little further ..

here we are

My friend agrees to a "one week" lasting tattoo

first the money of course

then a big smile

the work

and the result !

My friend discretely washed it off when the ladies had disappeared, she really didn't like this sh... like color !

But a little girl was very proud of the result !

I could have done that!
I thought she was paying for a sit-down job, you know, where the henna looks like lace gloves from fingers to elbows, including palms.
I once bought some henna paste, because my friends had a nightclub stall where there was space to do henna tattooing (and it was that sort of party: full of hippies with eyes like saucers!) ~ but none of us could get it to apply well enough. The stuff was too weak, and you needed a finer applicator to put on really intricate designs...
I posted up Morocco today. There was a royal garden I went to behind the palace in Rabat. It cost a few dirham to get in. Did you go there? I think it might be called Chellah Gardens... whatever, it was amazing ;-0

The Indians do it too. So far noboy has asked if I wanted it. I have many Indian girl friends.

I understand the little girl was happy!!! And of course I understand very well your friend who didn't like it!!! I show a woman in the street last time, she had one on the hand and I remember I didn't like it!!!!
My post is up! I run after the time since the house is full and I am not on vacation!!! But I am on a little cloud with my daughter at home!

After you wash it off the stain is supposed to stay for a while. We have mothers from our school kids come and do it for free on Harmony Day. I think your friend might have been ripped off.

I would like to get a henna tattoo. It's nice that they wash off with time. Some women do some very beautiful work.

It was nice of your friend to support local trades women. I hope they don't read this post!! Hehehe

I thought maybe it was the henna tattoos, where they DO wash it off after a little while - but the stain remains on the skin. Everywhere you go there is someone selling SOME KIND of gimmick, isn't there?
