Mehndi designs (مہندی ڈیزائن) are pretty patterns made on the skin with henna paste. Henna comes from henna plant leaves and makes temporary tattoos on hands, feet, and other body parts. People do this for special times, like weddings and festivals.
Mehndi designs can be simple or fancy. They can have flowers, leaves, shapes, or even animals. People use cones or brushes to put on the design. The paste dries on the skin for a while. After that, they take off the dried paste, and it leaves a reddish-brown stain. This stain gets darker over a day or two.
Mehndi is important in many cultures. It means more than just looking nice. It can show love, happiness, and good luck. People put mehndi on for weddings to bring luck to the bride and groom.
Mehndi has changed over time. It mixes old and new styles. Today, you can pick from many designs. Some are simple, some are detailed. Artists also mix in ideas from other cultures.
Mehndi designs are a special kind of art. They show culture, creativity, and happiness for celebrations.
