We our proud to announce that Henna artist Ashley Roney has joined up with the Kulture Tattoo Kollective to bring you her creative take on the ancient form of Henna. Often recognized as Henna tattoos. Mehndi, as it is known in India, its traditional roots are centuries old and its practices, symbolism, and traditions have been passed down through the ages by women.
