“How much does it cost” is a reasonable question, right? You want to know a couple of things: value for your dollar AND how to budget. It makes sense.
Answering the question isn’t as easy though. Yes, I could have a design book and a price list, but that would mean that I do the same pieces over and over and over. You wouldn’t get a unique piece of artwork, and I would have stopped doing henna a long time ago out of boredom (plus, I wouldn’t grow or be challenged as an artist).
When it comes to henna, the question of ‘how much does it cost’ is a little like asking the clerk at the gas station ‘how much do I owe’ before you pump the gas.
The analogy isn’t pretty, but it’s apt. At the gas station you can pay ahead $25 and the pump will stop. Likewise, if you want $25 in henna, I can do that. Or, I can ‘fill ‘er up’!
To give you an idea of how much henna you get for $20, please refer to the photo on the left... the photo on the right would be $40 each, or both for $75.
(to complicate things further, if you wanted super dense, fiddly, detailed henna that covered the same space, the henna would be more).
There’s a bit of mental algorithm I use based on these sketches and the looseness of the design.
