To choose a hand henna design, you can download free e-books that show many designs for all parts of the body. It is then an individual choice as to which type of design is preferable, taking into account whether it is for a particular ceremony.
A more contemporary design, such as the Arabic mhendi, offers a mixture of both traditional and modern looks. Traditionally, designing of the hands was done for celebrations, such as weddings. It then became a popular art for celebrities and is now used for all, merely as a fashion decoration. Henna tattoos are neither painful, nor permanent, making them an ideal method of body art.
