One Female Artist Is Using Her Henna Talents in the Best Way Possible
Dec 14, 2016
Sarah Walters, a henna artist in Washington state, draws her artwork on customers who are looking for designs in a variety of places.
Some of her most treasured clients are those who come for a "henna crown," or a head design drawn on those who have lost their hair from chemotherapy.
Walters, who felt helpless after losing her step-father after a short five-month battle with cancer, holds her henna crown art very close to her heart. To her, using her art was the only way she felt she was able to do something to help.
The crown art, which lasts for a few weeks before fading, is done without a cost, allowing her customers to feel beautiful for free.
"For a little bit people don't see that it's because I'm sick," one customer told NBC's Evening Magazine. "They see art and it doesn't look like just a bald head or any of that. It's pretty."
A comment to which Walters added, "To be able to contribute in that way to what I know is a really difficult time for some people... It wasn't hard to keep doing that."
