Most Exquisite Mehndi Hand Tattoos
Mehndi hand tattoos like these - are they only for Indian brides? While very common in Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, they're becoming more attractive to brides in the West. They are applied in pre-wedding celebrations with a bride, her closest friends and female relatives. Often the groom's name or initials are creatively hidden in the elaborate mehndi designs. It's a well-loved Indian wedding tradition when a professional mehndi artist arrives to apply a henna paste with a stick or plastic cone. Sugar and lemon juice are applied to make the tattoos darker and then the area is wrapped to lock in body heat and create the most intense colors. These breathtaking henna hand tattoos will last from one to three weeks.
