Henna is a small flowering shrub that has many uses. The fragrant flowers are used to create perfume, and the leaves are dried and then turned into a fine powder that's used for dying clothes, hair and temporarily dying the skin - hence henna tattooing.
The art of applying henna to the hands and feet is known as Mehndi, and is traditional used for celebrations and rites of passage. Every culture and region of the world uses henna tattoos in its own unique way. For Hindu weddings, henna is painted on the bride to symbolize joy, beauty, spiritual awakening and offering, while Moroccans often paint doors with henna to bring prosperity and chase away evil. Depending on where you get henna tattoos, they will look different. Indian tattoos feature fine line and floral patterns, while Arabic henna designs tend to be larger in scale and African henna patterns are more bold and geometric.
Henna is my hobby, and I have been during it for the past 10 years. Through the word-of-mouth more and more people realized about my henna art, and as a result my interest about henna grew deeper. Now I am experienced with traditional style with figure work, modern, and Arabic style. I have provided henna for brides, weddings and all kind of parties.
