Mehndi inspiration pictures
Mehndi is a custom in India that has been handed down over centuries. It is the traditional art of painting hands and feet with a paste of dried, powdered leaves of the henna plant mixed with water and is typically applied by women during weddings and festivals.
Mehndi designs tend to be a combination of floral & geometric motifs- paisley (ambi), straight lines, scallop lines, dots, tear-drops, basic leaf & floral shapes etc. Both symbolic & artistic these patterns are a fascinating art form on their own.
