Henna is a dye that is used to dye fabric, hair and skin. It is a flowering plant that when the leaves and stems are dried, then ground produces a greenish powder. This powder is then taken and combined with an acidic liquid. This combination will then create a brown, orange, or red stain on a porous surface such as your skin.

Mehendi tattoos are designs that are done on the body, most often it is seen on women, but men get Henna tattoos as well. The designs are usually very intricate and beautiful.
