Mehndi is one thing that all Indian women adore not just because it is so intricately entwined in our culture but because of how beautiful the mehandi design looks once it is finished.

Mehndi is actually a kind of a natural dye made from the leaves and stem of the Henna tree. It is being used now as a natural dyeing agent and the art of mehndi has now spread all over the world. In western countries, mehndi is being used as a temporary tattoo too. Mehndi especially has gained a great deal of popularity in the temporary tattoo industry.

We are usually quite accustomed to seeing lavish and intricate designs using mehndi during weddings but there are also some very simple mehendi designs that can be done on any occasion and that look equally beautiful too. These designs require very less time and are usually short and sweet ones that add a hint of colour to the hands but do not clutter or fill up the hands too much.
