Fahmo Abdulle from NewHolly, applies henna on Val Thorton from Rainier Vista, at the Eid Festival celebrating the end of Ramadan, at Rainier Vista Central Park, on June 30. The event was powered by dozens of volunteers and funding from the Neighborhood Matching Fund from the Department of Neighborhoods. The end of the holy month of Ramadan is traditionally the time for Muslim women to decorate their hands, arms, legs and feet with tattoos in henna, a dye derived from a flowering tree called Lawsonia inermis.
