The art of decorating skin/ body with different designs is known as Mehendi in Indian Sub-Continental. Usually, women apply many design variations onto their hands & body. Traditionally, Henna has been used for centuries for body decoration and is associated with many cultural celebrations.
“Many henna designers like myself learn from a young age. Henna was always a hobby that I liked doing on people and myself. Henna can be both adorning and therapeutic, and there is a great reward in getting all my designs someone’s hand as art. Especially for occasions such as EID.
All my designs vary from the simplest to the most intricate designs. It also ranges from the most traditional henna art to the simplest unique designs which is more common to see on other backgrounds as most people like it as henna tattoo.”
