A tattoo for me, it is

My biggest accomplishment this week was convincing the artist in the tattoo tent at the Vancouver Folk Festival to give me a henna Yoda. She didn’t really know who Yoda was (you can all hold your gasps) so I think she did an excellent job, considering she had to do it from my vague description.

This is a photo of him with the henna still caked on. It’s actually peeled off now and I’m left with the sepia-coloured imprint of my favourite green yoda.

By the way the artist is Nicole Pilich—you can check out her website at www.healingbodyart.com (but don’t inundate her with Yoda requests; she’s had her geek quotient for the week!).

Henna is pretty easy to use and, of course, it’s not permanent. Last year at pirate camp, I gave all my students henna tattoos (though I’m not even remotely as gifted in tattoo art as Nicole).
