Mehndi is a form of body art and temporary skin decoration from the Indian subcontinent usually drawn on hands or legs, in which decorative designs are created on a person’s body, using a paste,

created from the powdered dry leaves of the Henna Plant. Mehndi in Indian tradition is typically applied during Hindu weddings and festivals. 

It is a popular form of body art among the women of South Asia such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Nepal and in the Middle East. In the West, mehndi is known as “Henna Tattoo”.
