Henna Tattoo, India

As the holiday celebrations continue their forward march, we’re finding inspiration in the ancient beauty ritual of mehndi or Henna, a temporary body art that was originally used in Egypt, the Arabian Peninsula and the Indian subcontinent.

Today intricate and elaborate patterns are painted onto a bride’s hands and feet during a celebration the day before the ceremony. Family of the bride and groom and guests of the wedding are also decorated.

The effect is like a delicate tattoo, draped like lace over the skin. The ink usually washes out within 2 weeks.

You might consider adding it to your usual seasonal party wear, along with your perfectly coiffed locks, thanks to your ojon oil-infused T'zikal products, natch.
