How many of you have gotten henna tattoos?
I know lots of beaches and amusement parks have stands for black henna tattoos; I'm from Bangladesh and henna is a tradition in the Indian subcontinent for different celebrations. Yesterday was Eid (celebration at the end of Ramadan) and a lot of the women put on mendhi (traditional henna) in designs on their hands.

A traditional one looks like this:


People have it very elaborately done for weddings and it can cost around $100



I did a really simple one for Eid but most of the time I just make little test tattoos on myself or friends

I'm too much of a western european marauding capitalist swine descendant to get a henna tatoo.

I'll probably get a normal tattoo though that says "I only brake for fat cats".

W00t, another Bengali on UG.

Yeah, I've done henna tattoos for Eid for as long as I can remember. I just developed enough skills to do those elaborate ones. The trick is to fill up all the gaps with as much swirlies/floral stuff/lines etc. as possible.

I'll maybe post pictures as soon as I can find my camera.

Kinky.

You should get one, though, I think they're cool. Are the patterns area or culture specific?

The first one is really nice; I agree. To get it that nice you have to have a really fine tip and a lot of patience, something that nice would take about a half hour to design and then another 2 hours to dry and take off.

Nah, they usually last for two weeks. If you get it on your palms and wash your hands often you have to make sure to let the henna set for a good few hours for it to last longer than a week, and it depends on the quality of the henna too. Some gets nice and dark brown and stays that way, others only get an orangey tinge and fade quickly.

The little girl in the shadows in the bottom picture is me I have one on my left hand. I had to do them for a bunch of my mom's friends and my friends so mine is pretty simple since I didn't have much time/will to make it nice.

The patterns in the pictures in the first post are pretty standard for all of India and surrounding countries. It varies from place to place and person to person but it's usually one large focal bit, often a 6-ish shape or a flower shape, filled in and surrounded by swirls and dots and parellel lines and anything else to fill in space.

Ah ok, do the patterns mean anything? Like strong lines mean this, or curvy lines mean that?

Mostly yes. They denote specific shapes and have significance. In Delhi, we have this Henna guy who does various events from the religious texts on the hands. Pretty cool.

But mostly they are just random symmetrical patterns which look good.

Henna is a must for all the religious festivals/weddings in Indian subcontinent.

Nice.
Yea, Mehendhi can look really sexy when its simple and elegant.
But when its overdone like in the second pic..It looks pretty horrible.

This one is sweet.

I think they look really beautiful.

Oh and the type of 'henna' you get allergic reactions to - the black stuff - isn't real henna, it's some cheap chemical-filled crap you get at dodgy fairgrounds and what not. stay away from that stuff.
