Wedding season is approaching and all the brides to be are busy deciding on their attire and jewellery. However, a bridal look remains incomplete without mehendi. Brides nowadays want designs that have a modern touch to it, and Arabic mehendi will be ideal for them. In Arabic Mehendi the designs have distinctive floral art work and a free flowing structure; the floral designs are repeated in a geometric pattern covering entire hands and foot. Arabic mehendi will accentuate the beauty of the bride and make her look ravishing!

As the name suggests Arabic Mehendi originated in Arabian countries and it gradually gained popularity in Asia, especially in India and Pakistan. Often Indian motifs are combined along with Arabic mehendi, resulting in mixed patterns. Arabic mehendi is more bold and prominent because it is created using dark brown and black mehendi instead of red mehendi. The outline or borders of the designs are created using black mehendi that makes it look bold and beautiful. It is easier to create Arabic mehendi design and it is suitable for any occasion. Even if you are not an expert at creating mehendi, you can still create your own mehendi at home or try it on your friends.

    Hi Shabby thanks for these designs but i want to know one thing that after mehndi there is some tips so that color of mehndi would be dark as dark…

    • Shabby

      Hiee , Yes there is a way in which you may make them dark .. After application apply a mixture of lemon and sugar. Prepare the mixture beforehand and just apply the mixture over the mehendi once the deisgnis done. Let the mixture dry till the mehendi is ready to be removed . Then just remove as you would. This technique is widely used in India to make mehendi more dark.

    all this muslim traditions make me og so mad.
    Why we hindus have to copy muslims?
    We have Our ganga and Our sindur and Our bindya.
    Please throw these muslim traditions away.
    Pray to bhagwan to rinse you and take bath in ganga.

    Some of these are actually NOT “Arabic”. I’m actually experienced with henna and familiar with a lot of the details and the origin of all the designs. Who ever selected these pictures don’t really know the difference.
