Henna designs are a fun way to show off your individuality at weddings, engagement parties, and other special events. Henna has been used in many cultures around the world for centuries, with artisans using it as an art form to create ornate designs that last up to two weeks on the skin after application. Plus, once your henna design is applied, it can’t be erased from your skin no matter how hard you scrub! Here are seven of the most stunning henna designs that will make you look good even when you’re not trying!
Intricate Henna Designs:
An intricate, geometric Henna Designs are definitely going to stand out on your hands and can be placed in such a way that it draws attention to your ring finger. Placement of these designs will depend on where you plan on wearing them at your own wedding, but they can easily be added onto smaller fingers (like your pinkie or thumb) as well.
Check out photos of henna art like these online or in magazines and try doing some research into which style works best for you and where. Once you’ve found something you like, check with someone who knows their stuff—either an experienced artist or a person who has done henna for years—to make sure it’s actually possible for you before trying to go all out with an elaborate design.
This henna design features large, intricate patterns that look almost too perfect to be hand-drawn. However, with time and practice you’ll be able to create chandelier designs with your eyes closed! To start out, make sure you have a small surface area (like your arm) and experiment until you’re comfortable with creating designs that fill most of your space. Practice makes perfect! When you’re ready, take your skills up a notch by moving onto larger surface areas like legs or arms—or even bodies for more experienced artists.
We recommend starting with a medium size canvas before trying to tackle full body Henna Designs; once you feel confident, move on to something bigger! Just remember: The thicker and longer your lines are, the less detailed they will appear in person. The thinner and shorter your lines are, however, the less forgiving they will be if any mistakes are made. If you want it to be as perfect as possible from head-to-toe, we recommend doing a test run first.
Ornamental Round Pattern:
This traditional pattern is typically used as a base for other designs. The center of the round pattern is usually made up of repeated paisley, sunburst or medallion shapes. The round pattern can be worn alone or it can be combined with other henna designs like an Arabic letter design.
To create a round tattoo, you’ll need simple curved tools that work well with very fine lines like dotting tools, dental picks and stenciling brushes. This will let you recreate these intricate patterns in complete detail. Depending on how much time you want to spend creating your design (the more detailed, the longer it will take), decide whether or not you need separate templates for each part of your pattern so that everything matches up when your design is finished.
Open Palm Detail
This henna tattoo is ideal for weddings. A small, intricate floral design can be added to your hand as an accessory for any event or wedding. It’s beautiful and has lots of detail, but isn’t so large that it will overwhelm your arm. Keep it subtle and classy by just adding a few petals or even stick with one color if you want something understated and elegant.
You might find yourself choosing just one element from these gorgeous designs and incorporating it into your own piece, perfect for smaller events like bridal showers or anniversaries. For example, pairing an open palm design with some tiny flowers makes for a great way to get in on some festive wedding vibes while still looking lovely at work on Monday morning!
Small and Delicate Pattern:
Many weddings are held in summer, when it’s hot out and you don’t want to think about your sleeves or hair. Make sure your Henna Designs doesn’t scream Costume! and instead chooses bold colors, delicate patterns, and/or cool designs that will complement your outfit for the day. We love how intricate these tiger lilies are—but if you have simpler tastes, no problem.
