Notes

Description
"The use of henna (or “mehndi”) is popular in India. Events such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and festivals offer opportunities to view the splendor of henna designs and experiment on oneself. In the US, henna is often discussed in comparison to US-style body tattoos, so I wanted to write this book as a guide for anyone interested in learning more about henna as a form of body art. This book provides a historical context to the traditional use of henna and then compares henna to tattoos. However, that is not all - if you are innovative and keen to explore and try experimenting with henna, then step-by-step instructions are also provided for you. There is a mixture of designs to choose from with various levels of complexity for different parts of the body. And for those that do try henna, there is also a chapter on how to care for your henna designs, so you are always looking cool and trendy. Henna is gaining in popularity so don’t be left behind. Use this book to educate yourself and try something new." -
