Henna Mehndi Design

Henna designs done on the feet, involves painting beautiful and elaborate patterns with a dye made from crushed leaves of the henna plant. The Middle Eastern style consisted mostly of floral patterns inspired by Arabic carvings, paintings and textiles. This casual style did not usually follow a specific pattern. The North American style accentuated the shape of the feet using geometric floral patterns. The Indian and Pakistani designs are made up of intricate, repetitive paisley patterns, lines and teardrops.

Some of the popular designs for feet include flowers, leafy tendrils, and abstract shapes. Applying henna designs on feet are a little more difficult, but can be created easily with a bit of concentration. Usually, the sides or bottoms of the feet, are decorated with blocks of color on the tips of toes.
