What is Mehndi?

Mehndi is the practice of applying Henna tattoos to your hands and feet. This is a traditional Indian body art, used by both Muslims and Hindus at times of celebration like weddings or Eid, or Diwali.

Mehndi is applied using a henna cone and will last for a few weeks on your hands or feet.

Some people also spell it as Mehendi
