It sure is quiet in the mehndi body art corner of my small rural world. It is cold outside! So I practice on myself to stay limber of hand and mind. I spend a fair amount of time looking at fellow henna artisan’s work on photo/social media sites and am always impressed with a finely detailed Indian Bridal Mehndi design. I typically only have the opportunity to do this level of mehndi artistry on myself, as my clients usually prefer smaller, more flowing, open designs. This particular design is in the Indo Arabic Mehndi style, a fusion of the elegant sweeps of arabic motifs, often inspired by plants and flowers, with intricate detials inspired by traditional Indian Mehndi. Goodness, I love henna.
