I have never been a fan of henna, especially not the smell or the taste of it on your hands and nails when you’re eating.
However, that changed last year when Leena, my cousins and I began experimenting with different designs when we had free time in the holidays. I was all for the ‘bracelet style’ since it looked pretty and wouldn’t alter the taste of my food.
Since Leena did a module in visual arts I must say her drawing skills are much improved and I trust her to apply the henna after looking at a picture..so we Googled and found some designs on Pinterest that were easy to do.
Below is a recent (super simple) design that Leena did for me in February and as it was fading I just went over it again.
I tried an easy design on my leg (because if it gets ruined no one will know besides me. Lol) ..but it wasn’t as easy as I expected it to be.
The above image that I attempted is from Pinterest.. So if you’re good at art or you have steady hand, just google some Henna designs and give it a try.
Personally, I’m more for minimalism and simple designs. But if you love those super intricate designs, if you’ve tried your hand at being a henna artist, or even if you’d rather eat mud pie than come close to a henna tube, drop a comment below.
