MEHENDI ( HENNA TATTOO )
Mehendi making is very popular specially in India. Indian women apply this on their hands or feet. It is used on various special occasions such as weddings, parties, birthdays, festivals etc. Applying mehendi makes your hands or feet look really beautiful. Mehendi comes in varieties of colour options like black, red, stones, glitter and more, and is currently grabbing more attention in international countries. It’s also known as henna tattoo. Clove oil is applied after drying the henna tattoo, to enhance its colour. It is believed that if the henna tattoo is rubbed off with this oil once it dries the colour would get darker and last longer. The mehendi is washed off the next day.
THE HOW TO PART:
So fascinated with mehendi. I broke a bunch of fresh mehendi leaves from my garden and ground them to a smooth paste.
Luckily I had a few icing cones, I used one to fill this paste and made a fine hole at the bottom, thick enough to make the design I chose.
They say mehendi stains the hand pretty quick, so not taking any chances with that, I first practised my design on a paper. Once I was sure that my hand was set and I could apply it properly I proceeded to make my henna tattoo.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF MEHENDI DESIGNS.
I really enjoyed making these henna tattoos which turned out to be pretty good and received plenty of complements for it too. It’s something you should definitely try at least once in a life time. I am adding some designs I had tried out on paper to set my hand at it, as applying it direct without any experience might have got messy.
Had fun making temporary henna tattoos, you could try them out too !!!!!
