Henna Body Art is an ancient artform which dates back over 5,000 years. In India, North Africa, South East Asia and the Middle East it is thought to bring good fortune and happiness to those who wear it. Henna designs are traditionally worn for celebrations and other auspicious occasions, such as weddings, pregnancy and birth ceremonies and religious festivals.
A wide range of patterns and styles are used - feminine swirls, intricate lacework, bold geometric and symbols of protection are just some of these. Many traditional designs are taken from nature. Depending on the particular region, they may consist of flowers, leafy vines, birds and animals as well as the sun, moon and stars.
The henna paste is applied to the skin using a squeeze-type applicator - it looks a lot like cake-decorating! As it dries, the skin absorbs the henna dye. The paste is removed when it is completely dry, leaving the henna stain on your skin.
