Mehndi Pictures Design




Mehndi is a temporary skin decoration and kind of body art from the Indian subcontinent that is typically applied on the hands or legs. They are body decorations made by applying a paste made from the dried, powdered leaves of the henna plant on a person’s body. It is a common type of body art in South Asia, which includes nations like India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, and Nepal. It is comparable to henna body art traditions seen in North Africa, East Africa, and the Middle East. Mehndi is known by several distinct names in the many South Asian languages. Henna tattoo is the name given to mehndi in the West, but it is not a tattoo because only the surface of the skin is covered.


There are a lot of varieties and styles. Women typically use mehndi to decorate their hands and feet, although some, such as cancer patients and people with alopecia, occasionally use it to adorn their scalps.

Henna often has a brown tint, however white, crimson, black, and gold can also be utilized in designs.

In Indian culture, mehndi is often done during Hindu weddings and holidays including Bhai Dooj, Navratri, Diwali, Karva Chauth, Vat Purnima, and Teej.


Mehndi is also applied by Muslims in South Asia during Muslim weddings and holidays like Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adha.

Women frequently have henna painted on their hands, feet, and occasionally the backs of their shoulders at Hindu and Sikh festivals. Men, on the other hand, typically get it applied on their back, chest, arms, and legs. As a result of contrast with the lighter skin on these areas, which by nature contains less melanin, the design will be most visible on the palms, backs of the hands, and soles of women’s feet.
