Do you Mehndi?5:00 AM
It's the final day of the Digital Dozen's Countries and Cultures challenge week. Today I'm back to a culture inspiration. I've done some mehndi or henna inspired nails for you today. Mehndi body art is an Indian and Pakistani art form which is used primarily in the celebration of weddings. It's gotten pretty widespread in the past ten years or so and you can actually buy kits or have it done in a number of places now. In the US at least, almost every tourist location offers henna tattoos. I've had it done twice myself. Once in one of these said tourist locations and it didn't take very well. It was very light and lasted only a day or so. The second time I had it done was at an Indian festival and the result was MUCH different. It was very dark and intricate and lasted over a week. So it's quite important how it's mixed and with what.
I really love mehndi. I think it's so beautiful and I love the intricate designs that are made with it. I hope you all enjoyed Countries and Cultures week!
