Celebration Design 2.


Celebration Design 2.

Mehendi/ Henna is extremely suitable for creating intricate patterns on various parts of the body, and a painless alternative to permanent tattoos, I considered it as the best alternate.
This design came out of me when I couldn’t resist the spare henna cone in front of me. I wanted to patterned it to cover and decorate the whole palm.

Mehendi History

The Mughals brought Mehendi to India as lately as the 15th century AD. As the use of Mehendi spread, its application methods and designs became more sophisticated. The tradition of Henna or Mehendi originated in North Africa and the Middle East. It is believed to have been in use as a cosmetic for the last 5000 years. According to professional henna artist and researcher Catherine C Jones, the beautiful patterning prevalent in India today has emerged only in the 20th century. In 17th century India, the barber’s wife was usually employed for applying henna on women. Most women from that time in India are depicted with their hands and feet hennaed, regardless of social class or marital status.
