The art of henna has been a tradition in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, and Africa for centuries, and it has only gotten better. These tattoos are mostly made to decorate a bride’s hand and feet before the marriage, celebrating with a party the night before the wedding, where friends and family can get their hands decorated too.
Designs are different amongst cultures, Indian’s being the most intricate and lace-like patterns, while Arabic designs are more abstract, and African’s are very geometric and bold. There are even more modern designs covered in glitter or gilding, and they all make for amazingly beautiful designs. Here is a gallery of some of very intricate and gorgeous designs from different cultures.
