Gorgeous henna pattern – tradition meets modernity
Would you like to change something in your outfit? Maybe lately you often think of a tattoo. But you do not dare to wear something permanent on your skin? Then there is a perfect alternative for you – henna pattern. The henna art comes from the Arab and Indian tradition.
There the hands and feet of women are decorated with henna, for various festive occasions such as. Births, weddings and circumcisions. Very important here are the actual patterns. They not only serve as jewelry, but have very special meaning. They bring luck, fertility, long life or protect against “the evil eye”.

The most beautiful of the henna patterns are the Indian ones. They are very delicate and detailed. One often sees floral patterns, payslies, peacocks, the god of fortune Ganesh, as well as the bride and the groom. The wedding hand decoration in India is very intense and almost complete. It resembles a lace fabric. The patterns are usually compact, but also very flowing. They range from fingertips to elbows.
The henna pattern in India is called Mehndi’s after the name of the wedding ceremony – “Mehndi Raat”. The intensity of the color of the Mehndi also has a meaning. In some regions it is said that the stronger the coloration of the henna pattern, the more intense and deeper the love of the couple will be.
