Mehendi is a very important ritual at Indian weddings. In fact, a bride is incomplete without the beautiful designs of henna tattoo on her feet and hands. The thing, however, is that Mehendi is still quite restricted to just the hands and feet. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if henna could adorn other body parts as well? Well, let us introduce you to this new trend of full body mehndi designs.
