Beauty In Culture
Henna is a big part of my culture. It is usually done on special occasions, such as weddings or special holidays. Henna is a plant, which is crushed and made into a paste. Henna can be used as a temporary tattoo, because it only stains the body. I am a huge fan of henna, it is a big hobby of mine. In this design, the intricate details, the shading, the different designs combined into one make it so beautiful. As they say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," well this is what I see as beautiful. Its beauty ranges for the most intricate of designs (top image) to the simplest of designs (bottom image).
