Henna tattoo, aka Mehndi, is a kind of temporary tattoo which is very popular in India, Pakistan, Africa, and the Middle East countries. Henna refers to the henna tree (Lawsonia inermis) or the dye prepared from the plant, which can then be applied to the skin in dazzlingly intricate patterns. Once the paste is removed, the reddish-orange stain begins to oxidize and darken over the next few days. Although not permanent, the body art can last up to one or two weeks on the surface of the skin, making it a temporary and pain-free alternative to traditional tattooing. Traditional henna is drawn in delicate patterns on the palms and feet of bride before her marriage ceremony in Hindu and Muslim cultures. Although, modern henna is applied in any sorts of designs anywhere on the women as well as men. In this post, we collected some great examples of traditional henna.
