When you think of body art, the one thing that immediately comes to mind is TATTOOS. Tattoos have a long unending love story with mankind, its popularity only slightly diminished by the fact that it’s a permanent mark that you can’t get rid off easily especially when you have a change of mind. India has had a long fascinating history with body art in the form of mehndi, a temporary tattoo made from the henna plant. Mehndi designs vary from simple circles to complicate and intricate designs and are usually applied to the hands and feet of women (sometimes men) on special festive occasions.
In India and certain other countries, Mehndi ceremonies are a grand dazzling affair. An entire night is set aside and a professional artist is hired to decorate the bride’s hands and feet, amidst song and dance. And it’s not just the bride who gets to wear these designs but every girl present at the party.
But you don’t really need a special occasion to try mehndi. If you aren’t getting hitched, or can’t afford a professional mehndi designer to decorate your hands and feet, you can now flip your iPhone, download the Mehandi app and get awesome designs, tips, tricks and more at the tap of a finger.
